Want to learn how to save money on your power bill? Grow a new garden?How to reduce your waste? Clever tips and tricks to make your home more energy efficient? 

We’re keen to help you become more sustainable in your daily life through participation in the Future Living Skills Programme.

Future Living Skills was developed collaboratively by local government in NZ and is supported by Palmerston North City Council.  It is published by independent charity Sustainable Living Education Trust.

Over the eight-week series of interactive workshops, hear from council and community experts on a range of topics, each with their own learning guide (available on the Sustainable Living Education Trust website), and share your own ideas, challenges, and tips.  We can all learn from each other!

Our 2023 Programme will start on Monday 27th March. The weekly workshops will be held at Te Patikitiki Library, from 10am - 12 noon (with a 2 week break for the school holidays). The following topics will be covered:


Mar 27:  Gardening

Apr 3:     Water

Apr 24:   Waste

May 1:    Eco-building & renovation

The programme is free though koha is appreciated.
