Green-friendly stalls for Eco­Fair

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch - By JON BAS­SETT

FRUIT pre­server Megan Radaich is the full bot­tle on how to pre­serve fruits, veg­eta­bles and other pro­duce at Mos­man Park’s 5th Eco­Fair this Satur­day.

“It’s all about con­nect­ing with lo­cal pro­duc­ers so peo­ple can pre­serve each sea­sonal har­vest,” she said.

She will demon­strate how to pre­serve and fer­ment pro­duce at the Eco­Fair, which pro­motes en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able living.

“I’ll be do­ing fam­ily favourites, like jams, pickles, chut­neys and pro-bi­otic yo­gurt, but with no ar­ti­fi­cial flavours or preser­va­tives,” Ms Radaich said.

The Eco­Fair will have 73 other green-friendly stalls in­clud­ing those for gar­den­ers, grey wa­ter treat­ment, elec­tric bikes, clothes, art and soap, with an em­pha­sis on re­cy­cling.

Or­gan­iser Libby Eus­tance said: “The last two EcoFairs pro­duced only four bins of rub­bish from 1500 peo­ple, and we’ll be try­ing to beat that this year.”

Or­gan­ists, pi­anists, per­cus­sion­ists and singers will per­form in the church, while chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment will in­clude, wood craft, paint­ing and build­ing card­board cas­tles.
