The group runs a ‘free stall’ at Carlisle Farmers’ Market on the first Saturday of every month, where people can give away and get all sorts of useful goods, and talk to the group about recycling and reuse. The group also hold a conversation café on the third Saturday of the month that often runs in conjunction with a slow bike ride. Other activities throughout the year include tree planting, which is held from October/November through to March, working in partnership with the Environment Agency and local farmers.
