Spreading no-waste mantra
Fair Harvest will bring their annual anti-waste festival back for 2017. This year’s Festival of No Waste will offer stallholders and patrons an insight into reducing human-produced waste in everyday life.
The event is in its sixth year and each festival focuses on one of the 12 principles of permaculture.
Organiser Jodie Lane said waste was a factor for everyone.
“Waste is a huge subject that filters through into just about every aspect of our lives,” she said
“Food of course is a huge subject and includes everything from dealing with leftovers, to where food waste goes, using less disposable products in the kitchen, and not buying food packaged in material that will head straight to landfill.”
Ms Lane said the festival would focus on the positive ways people could combat waste such as up- cycling clothing, making wax food wrap and building a worm farm.
There are no costs for holding a stall but a door charge will help cover costs towards a composting toilet for future events, Ms Lane said. The Festival of No Waste will be held at 426 Carters Road on November 26 from 10am.
Entry is $20 adults, $5 children. Contact Ms Lane via firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 9758 8582.
