A project exploring our sustainable past for a sustainable future, at Mrs Smith’s Cottage.
Be More… Seasonal. Sustainable. Hilda.
During this time of climate crisis more people are looking to the past to learn new skills and rediscover traditional knowledge that will be able to help us live a more sustainable and environmentally friendly daily life.
Throughout 2022, Mrs Smith’s Cottage in Navenby will be sharing practical everyday skills inspired by Mrs Smith’s low waste lifestyle.
The project is an opportunity to increase your understandings of seasonal eating, food production, and waste disposal methods to make more sustainable choices.
Mrs Smith’s Sustainable Food
The cottage team will be holding a season of workshops, talks, and events at the cottage, online, and around North Kesteven.
The programme will culminate in an almanac-style guide to be sold at Mrs Smith’s Cottage, giving practical low waste advice inspired by Mrs Smith’s life, interspersed with relevant quotes from Mrs Smith’s Diaries.
Sustainable food and seasonal eating will be major themes in this project, and the following workshops are designed to help you make a start with sustainable eating.
