Winter events 2023
Our winter events kick off on November 25th with the return of our annual Winter Fair! Our Earthworks community comes together with supporters and the wider public to enjoy seasonal refreshments and entertainment, with Earthworks’ handmade crafts available for purchase.
Festivities continue with public wreath making workshops on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd December. Our afternoon sessions are now fully booked but availability is good for both morning sessions. See the events page for details.
If you can’t make it to our Winter Fair, we will be at the St Albans Farmers’ Market on Sunday 10th December where you may still be able to buy our popular log reindeer and other festive crafts, alongside our usual seasonal produce.

Climate Action Planning
Earthworkers, staff and volunteers are together developing a Climate Action Plan for Earthworks. As part of St Albans Sustainability Festival ’22, we showcased our Climate Action Planning.
Climate change is now a very real threat. Evidence shows that more vulnerable people and those with a disability are likely to be more disadvantaged as a result, and that the voice and contribution of all is important. We already work sustainably, but a Climate Action Plan will work towards Earthworks being a carbon-zero organisation.
In March we ran climate action workshops to provide a space in which people can learn about climate change, discuss how they feel about it, celebrate the positive actions we already take, and generate ideas for further action in the areas of: energy, transport, food, waste, what we buy, and what we sell or give. Suggestions include reviewing our heating options, promoting use of public transport, a ‘healthy lunchbox for you and the planet’, sourcing non-plastic plant pots, water re-use in toilet flushing, and developing a purchasing and procurement policy that emphasises sustainable and ethical.
The next phase of the project is to prioritise actions and begin to put them into practice.
