Our Green Living Day
The Green Saint of St.Patrick and All Saints Lansdowne hosted a Green Living Day on 21 April 2018. A day filled with conscious living by making a difference to our health and environment. We had interesting talks on the dangers of preservatives in our food and tasty solutions by Diane Jutzen , Healthy eating & free range products by Desiree Butzer, Start your organic garden by Roger Isaacs of Samporele, Save water & plastic by Felicity Swartz of Naturally Good, How to make humus & falafel by Glenda Pieters and simple yet effective self defence by Danielle Rinquest. Delicious healthy goodies were sold. The profit made at the event was spent on buying flowering plants for the church instead of buying cut flowers weekly which is expensive, you need to clean the vases and the flowers gets thrown away. We also bought Naturally Good cleaning products for the church. Because of the green awareness, the men’s group built a simple water system that leads the greywater from the sink to the garden! Any church group who would like to have a Green Living Day can contact the Green Saints.
