Last Saturday, Reverse Garbage Queensland launched its new program, Creative Classrooms and Centres. The program aims to engage with the community of educators who are passionate about sustainability, by offering training, resources and opportunities for collaboration.

What better way to start than with a PD workshop for early childhood educators? RGQ has run many PDs for childcare providers over the years, but this was the first of such workshops held in the Woolloongabba warehouse with participants coming from different kindies, childcare centres and primary schools.

Dear Friends of Reverse Garbage Queensland,

May seems a fine month for changing things up a bit. Like reading in the outdoors, doing something you enjoy in a different environment can lead to inspiring results. Why not try a little creative reuse art and crafting with friends in the garden?
