Armchair Adventures Composting Workshops two children holding whiteboards whilst standing in a black compost bin

Composting Workshop: Armchair Adventures!

In April, we popped over to Hattersley Library to run some super fun Armchair Adventure workshops. All themed around our Composting Episode!

Over 30 local older people helped create our Armchair Adventures podcast. We were keen to keep bringing generations together to have fun! So the workshop was specifically designed to involve ALL the family!

This workshop was made possible by funding from Recycle for Greater Manchester. With this, we had a really fun day exploring the importance of composting to help save the planet!

We used our imaginations to shrink to the size of a beetle and explore a summer garden! The children had a great time becoming their very own fantastical mini-beasts. (Think spider-bees, helpful spiders that can also FLY!!) and improvising their own adverts about their super-planet-saving gadgets! 🌍

And after ALL of that moving and grooving, the children and their parents all wrote down their pledges on how they would be more eco-friendly in their household from now on.

We had some outstanding pledges like ‘I will reduce my food waste by creating meal plans!’ and ‘I will compost more!’.

Best of all, everyone got their very own compost bin to take home and start composting!
