Rediscover @ Home Series

The Rediscover @ Home Series looks behind the scenes of the Rediscovery Centre and we will be sharing tips on sustainability and upcycling, providing online tours of the Centre and delivering some curriculum led educational tutorials. This series is supported by EPA, Dublin City Council and Pobal.
