Here’s some news of local events taking place over the coming months, including monthly sessions to make recycled art out of bicycle bits and courses on organic gardening at Leicester’s Ecohouse…
Recycled bike art workshops
I currently use old bike parts to design and make objects to be worn or used around the home. I divert these unwanted goods from going to landfill. More info is available on: www.creativeproblemsolvers.co.uk
Now you can get involved too…..I am starting to run a drop-in workshop at the leicester art organisation, 68 Humberstone gate, LE1 5PL.
It will run 10am – 4pm every second friday and saturday monthly. At just £5 pp its a bargain. Why not come along?

Gardening Course – January 17th: Vegetables and Rotation
Vegetables and Rotations – Learn which plant families all the common
vegetables belong to and how to move them around your plot to maintain soil
fertility. In the EcoHouse garden we have two areas demonstrating crop
rotation, and demonmstrating that it is perfectly practical in an average
sized garden or allotment. One area is 4 seperate vegetable beds which get
rotated annually, the other is a smaller bed, some 5 feet square, where
each of the four corners is rotated annually .

Explores water saving techniques, which vegetables are hardy and frost
sensitive, anbd recommended watering periods.
