Kinder Living event in Horsham

We are going to be at the Kinder Living Home Show on Saturday 2nd (10-4pm) and Sunday 3rd (10-4pm) March 2019, with Sussex Green Living displays and a pop-up Horsham Repair Cafe come along and see us.

What is the Kinder Living Home Show?

Founded by Jeanette Mercer and a team of volunteers the event aims to encourage more sustainable choices in our homes, gardens and daily lives. This year it is taking place at County Hall, North Horsham, Park Street, Horsham, RH12 1XH.

There will be stands, demos and local experts offering advice on saving energy and water, alternatives to plastic, eco friendly decorating and renovation, crafts, textiles and more. There will be repairs of laptops, PCs, small domestic items and clothes, a seed swap and gardening advice.

About Carrie Cort

My name is Carrie Cort, I set up Sussex Green Living out of concern for the way we humans are treating the planet which sustains us. With motherhood in 2008 came concern about environmental sustainability and a burning desire to learn how we can live more environmentally friendly lifestyles, in harmony with nature. I have always had a passion for the countryside, animals and the natural environment. Most of my career has been spent in marketing and communications, mainly within education and the landbased industries, latterly using the power of video communications. In an effort to help create a climate for change I decided to use my knowledge and digital skills to share ideas which anyone can adopt, saving money and the planet. I’m not an expert, just an ordinary person who is on a greening journey and wanting to pass on what I’ve learnt to others. Let’s all make some simple changes, become more resilient and try to lead simpler, less materialistic and consumerist way of life.
