Upcycle Your Life took place at Fearon Hall, Loughborough last Saturday: a day of sharing skills and learning from the community as part of Fun Palaces.
The event included people sharing produce, gardening tips, freshly pressed apple juice and beekeeping advice.
People also shared their ideas for the green space around Fearon Hall.
I showed people how to make toiletries, and encouraged them to paint rocks for the community garden.
People sold their crafts to raise funds for future activities while the cafe provided Fairtrade tea courtesy of the Co-op.
