Comments are Off

A greenhouse built from plastic bottles and other recycled materials has appeared on the Quayside and in it Mermaid Quay staff will be growing vegetables and flowers using the “digestate” made from food waste from the restaurants, bars & cafes which has been recycled to create a soil enhancer.
Families will have the chance to see recycling in action during the Easter holidays,  as Mermaid Quay showcases its work to cut waste and increase improve sustainability.
The GreenHouse will form the centrepiece of a programme of free Easter activity which will include a treasure hunt and a selfie competition.
The greenhouse will be on the Quayside from Thursday 6 April to Wednesday 24 May 2017.
