This weekend the Eco-Living Fair celebrates it’s eleventh year as Randwick City Council’s signature sustainability event. Families and residents from across the east and inner west suburbs are encouraged to make a day of it with a range of new and popular events on offer.
Market stalls selling environmentally friendly and locally made goods will set the backdrop for a program of workshops, demonstrations, special talks, live music and children’s entertainment–all with an environmental focus. Notable talks will include the Eco-Futures Discussion, where sustainability experts Professor Veena Sahajwalla and Professor Mark Diesendorf will talk about how you can make a difference to our environmental future, and the Kids Panel Discussion where local primary school children will share ideas and future visions for the environment.
Experts will be on hand helping out with keeping bees, chickens and sustainable food production in addition to other popular events such as the Council’s Garden Awards, free bicycle maintenance workshops and a bike obstacle course.
In musical entertainment, The Vegetable Plot (pictured) will be serving up a fresh feast of grooves, catchy tunes, colourful characters and delicious puns. Their veggie-positive tunes bring a whole new meaning to ‘roots music’. (They’ll be playing at the Big Top at 10:30am.)
Take advantage of all this remarkably positive day has to offer, and you might just find yourself treading a little more lightly on our mother earth on your way out.
