FESTIVAL FAR FROM A WASTE
THE inaugural community-led Blue Sky Festival on Saturday brought a feeling of hope, appreciation and celebration to the Hills and there is already much talk of making this an annual event.
Overheard in the street: “An incredible effort. Just amazing to see so many inspirational people and ideas coming together!”.
Though they cannot list here all the folk who provided support, encouragement and involvement throughout many months of festival planning and on the day, the organising team would like to particularly thank Mundaring in Transition, Lottery West, the Wildflower Society, Bendigo Bank, the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council, Rotary and the Shire of Mundaring.
The area around Mundaring Sculpture Park was abuzz with activities focusing on minimal waste and maximum community involvement.
The festival drew together many local sustainability and environmental groups and individuals who presented a huge range of talks, activities, workshops and displays.
Peter Holland was master of ceremonies for the day, keeping festivalgoers informed of the day’s events and highlights.
Presentation topics included bushfire readiness and mitigation,
