Sustaining the fun for EnviroFEST 2015!

EnviroFEST 2015 is set to be bigger and better than ever this year as it celebrates five years of showcasing environmental services and products on March 29.

Since it began in 2010, EnviroFEST has grown from humble beginnings to an event that attracts 3,000 people each year and featuring more than 40 stalls and displays in support of local environmental and conservation issues.

Children too are encouraged to learn more about green issues with plenty of  eco-themed activities such as creating ‘Junk Bugs’, storytelling and crowd favourite – the Children’s Forest Treasure Hunt with Fairy Sandie.

Whiteman Park Manager, Steve Lowe said that EnviroFEST has become an important event on the Park’s calendar as it allows visitors to engage with the park and learn more about conservation values and the importance of a conservation reserve.

“The festival continues to embrace and engage the community by helping people to achieve a sustainable lifestyle,” he said.  

“EnviroFEST engages all ages and so that the whole family can enjoy a fun-filled day out as well as people being able to learn more about local environmental issues and speak with sustainability experts and local groups on a range of topics.”

A series of workshops will run on the day, allowing visitors to actively participate and learn about a number of topics, including how to create compost, cooking with the sun and “Could you live plastic free?”

The event also offers an opportunity to celebrate with Men of the Trees, who recently broke the Guinness World Record for most trees planted in a single day with more than 100,450 native seedlings planted in Whiteman Park last July.

Other attractions at this year’s event include native animal and fauna displays, organic and native seedlings for sale, bushfire awareness information, eco cleaning products, raw honey, solar energy, environmentally-friendly funerals, sustainable living products and local wildlife rescue groups.

EnviroFEST 2015 will be held in the Village at Whiteman Park from 10am till 3pm.
