~We’re living in a time where anything is possible. In the last century the first mission to the moon was explored. In the future there’s talk of trips to Mars.

But what about things closer to home. What if, decades from now garden enthusiasts could grow their own home. It’s a concept that may seem far fetched but it could be achievable.

Last weekend the Lancashire Science Festival took over UCLAN. It was an opportunity to learn about science in a fun and interactive way. One of the event’s was called ‘Grow Me a Home’ . It was a thought provoking workshop and exhibition which considered the questions ‘Could we grow our own homes?’ and ‘How do we want to live?’

The event certainly made people think in the context of recycling and cutting down on air and noise pollution as well as solar energy and cost effective alternatives.

Whilst the seminar was taking place visitors were invited to add to the work and the discussion around what they saw. The exhibition element will remain open to all from until 12 July.

The event is free to attend and no booking is required.

We are surrounded by buildings and spend up to 90% of our time in them. Knowing this we’ll want to learn how we can be ozone friendly. Come along and find out more:-
