Nothing To Do In Lagos? This Weekend Discover Nigerian-Made Textiles Or Attend A Vegan Meet Up

Every Friday, Nothing To Do In Lagos in partnership with Konbini, will be choosing the most exciting and diverse events happening around Lagos each weekend.

NTDIL has been kind enough to collate some of the best events happening in Lagos this weekend, and because we know making a choice can be too much of a chore, we decided to go through the events and pick the ones that have the most potential for a good weekend outing.

From a six-week exhibition on Nigerian textiles to a vegan meet up, we picked two events we think you might want to clear your calendar for. If you still want more options, you can check out NTDIL’s Instagram page or sign up to their weekly newsletter right here.

Lagos Vegan Meet-Up : Food Is Medicine

This vegan meet up which is open to all - from meat eaters to vegans and every one in between - wants to teach you all about healing power of plant-based food. In addition, this private event (you have to RSVP to attend) will explore alternative farming practices, such as hydroponics, aquaponics and aeroponics.

And if you're confused about what this means, don't worry, we've got you covered:

Hydroponics refers to growing plants without soil, using water with nutrients instead. Aquaponics refers to growing both fish and plants, utilizing the waste from one to feed the other. And aeroponics means growing plants in an air/mist environment with no soil and very little water.
