The Greener Footprint Fair is a free family friendly event designed to inspire and connect residents with local sustainable living experts and to provide support to those who wish to know more about bush fire preparedness and waste management.
The fair will have a collection of stall holders to promote sustainable living initiatives and provide opportunities for local residents to make connections. There will be food & drink stalls, live music, educational stalls, animals, and a schedule of speakers to cover a range of subjects on sustainability, climate resilience and waste.
This year more importance will be placed on actions that we as a community need and want to take. This will be in the form of workshops, including waste, aboriginal land care education, bush fire preparedness and fossil fuel reduction initiatives. See accordions below for further details.
Last year was the inaugural event for the greener footprint fair which saw a large amount of the Shire's community come through. The event was held in June and was a success even though a little chilly. This year we have moved it to a warmer time of year and to the Tulip time festival, we hope this will increase attendance and the events impact.
At the end of the daytime schedule we will be screening Rachel's Farm, kindly sponsored by WaterNSW. The documentary shows the journey of Rachel Ward as she transforms her traditional Beef Northern NSW farmstead into a regenerative farm, improving the soils fertility and increasing the resilience of the farm for the future. The film will be introduced by RegenAction who are a local group working with the community to encourage and implement regenerative farming practices.
Please note, the capacity for the documentary is limited, so bookings are essential!
