Green Family Life Festival – Sun 9 September

The Green Family Life Festival is a community event that aims to inspire families to live more sustainably, follow the seasons, celebrate their garden and care for the planet.  

Come along and stroll the marketplace to find great products and ideas to encourage sustainability. Watch demonstrations for take-home ideas such as making your own balance bike, composting, creating an edible garden and keeping chickens in your backyard. Take a sustainable house tour to learn more about retro-fitting your home or sit back and enjoy organic food and wine and live music from charming folk band Anna Smyrk and the Appetites.

The day will also be jam-packed with fun and games for the kids including face painting, singing and dancing with Mini Maestros, sustainable story time, cargo bike rides and tree planting. Plus there will be competitions with great prizes including an art and craft competition using recycled materials, and for the handy man or woman at heart a ‘flat pack assembly competition’ sponsored by Ikea and compered by Deputy Leader of the Greens Adam Bandt!

A fun and informative, family-friendly event with loads to see, do, explore and take home. Entry is $5 per family but well worth it.   Join in the celebrations and add a splash of green to your family life. For the full program click here or call 9428 9901.
