We are super excited to announce our second Annual Landcare Festival!
Our festival will focus on educating our community about sustainable landcare and environmental practices. With free presentations by well-known hosts, including Eva Ford from MRCCC, Vic from Valley Bees, Murray Keys from the Gympie Solar Association, and many more. Our hosts will discuss a variety of topics, including revegetation of your block, wildlife, bio-control, and a bush tucker cooking class by James Barnden, just to name a few.
We will have over 25 vendors on the day, all of whom are environmentally-friendly businesses or organisations, including, all sorts of products and fresh organic produce and materials for purchase on the day, just like your local market!
“What’s in it for the kids”, you say? We’ve got them covered!
- Kid’s Zone Activities (murals, craft, musical instruments etc.)
- Treasure Hunt
- Face painting
- Jumping Castle
- Plant your own seed workshop (and you get to keep it and watch it grow!)
- Petting Zoo with reptiles and fluffy animals too!
Zinc Radio will be broadcasting live from our event and will be drawing raffles throughout the day!
We will be holding a fundraiser barbecue as well, but don’t stress if you don’t like a sausage sizzle, we’ll also have wood-fired pizzas, a coffee van, ice cream, and a fairyfloss van for the kids. Live entertainment will be available whilst you eat and relax as well.
PLUS! The Victory Church has graciously agreed to let us use their car park for the event to allow more patrons! We will be shuttle bussing patrons to and from Victory College on Old Maryborough Road every 15 minutes!
