The 2014 Southern Gippsland Sustainability Festival held on Sunday 13th April was yet again a roaring success! The festival attracted 2000 people who enjoyed strolling around in the amazing autumn weather. With the event drawing people from Baw Baw and the Latrobe Valley as well as South Gippsland and Bass Coast, there is no sign of this annual event getting smaller. The extensive variety of stalls included displays and information about worm farms, keeping chickens, solar electricity and heating, making honey, growing vegetables……... the list goes on. There were plenty of free activities to keep the kids busy including a race against waste game, building mini-sustainable houses, face painting and more while the parents could enjoy the displays and presentations. Presentations included a cheese and yoghurt making demo, how to grow garlic at home, sustainable business design, community gardens and veggie growing, how to heat your house using the air in your ceiling cavity and major sponsors – gREat spoke about getting rid of your electricity bills forever! The success of the festival illustrates that the movement towards a more sustainable future in Southern Gippsland has vast community support behind it.
