From Saturday 6 August until the end of November, Birkenhead Library are holding weekly Green Clinics from 10am-12pm.
The weekly drop-in Green Clinics promote and educate on all things Green and to raise “Green Literacy” in the community so we have a better chance of achieving our Sustainable Development Goals.
This initiative was inspired by Toronto Public Library’s Environmentalist in Residence Programme that started back in 2018. It also responds to the Auckland Climate Emergency declared in 2019.
Birkenhead Library have partnered with some amazing local experts, including Pest Free Kaipātiki, Compost Collective, Kaipātiki Project, Zero-Waste Hub, and the Birkenhead Garden Circle to facilitate this weekly drop-in Green Clinic.
Our local enviro experts are looking forward to answering your questions about climate action, waste minimisation, and how to protect our environment and nurture our biodiversity including providing you info on what to plant for birds, bees and butterflies.
Aucklanders can seek advice on gardening, pest management – pick up a pest trap.
Composting, soil regeneration, how to volunteer for environmental restoration and more.
No matter where you're at in your sustainable living journey, our enviro experts at the Green Clinics desk at Birkenhead Library will be happy to chat and answer all your questions about sustainable living and environmental sustainability.
So come on down to Birkenhead Library this Saturday 10am to 12pm, for free advice on growing your own food, weeding, pest management, edible gardens, sustainable practices, volunteer involvement, crop management and anything in-between.
