Logan Eco Action Festival 2019
Free family fun promised at LEAF
If you can’t reuse it, refuse it!
That will be the take-home message from this year’s Logan Eco Action Festival, better known as LEAF, which will be back for its ninth year next month.
Gardening guru and self-proclaimed “friend of the festival” Costa Georgiadis, from ABC TV’s Gardening Australia show, will again headline the event for 2019, continuing his strong track record of inspiring clean green living in Logan. Costa will be joined by several other green-living superstars, whose names will be announced in coming weeks.
The event will also feature a range of workshops and demonstrations promoting tips and tricks on sustainable living practices such as plant-based cooking, cheese making, keeping backyard chickens, kokedama making and composting.
Discover how easy it is to live more sustainably with a range of different exhibitors offering information, including local beekeeping, how to care for local wildlife, sustainable household practices and local resources supporting sustainable living.
Growers and Producers
Connect with local growers and producers, as well as those organisations that care for injured wildlife and those that help to keep local waterways and green spaces in their natural state.
Local government services
Introduce the kids to a range of local services that form our community services. A learned appreciation for what happens “behind the scenes” is a great foundation for kids to understand how communities work.
Whether you fancy a BBQ chargrill, French crepes, or paella, you will find a range of different delicious food options at the Logan Eco Action Festival 2019. Plenty of healthy refreshing drinks are on offer too, including iced tea, juices and coffee. You are also welcome to pack a lunch and bring it along, with Logan Eco Action Festival being held on the leafy Griffith University’s Logan Campus.
