Griffith University Logan Campus will turn green today as the Logan City Council hold the Logan Eco Action Festival aka LEAF.
This FREE event gives the community an opportunity to celebrate everything eco while exploring how everyone can reduce, reuse, and recycle to create a more sustainable world and future. Learn to make sustainable choices one LEAF at a time.
The main stage and workshops will feature interactive presentations from some of the country’s leaders in sustainability, gardening, and waste reduction. Plus, eco-exhibitors, wardrobe rummage, plant sale, hands-on workshops, eco-markets, and fun kids’ activities. You’ll be sure to take away many big and small tips to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
Workshop and activities are also free and are on a first come, first in basis. Stocks are limited at some activities.
Craig Reucassel, from the ABC’s The War on Waste, headlines the program alongside gardener, chef and Grow it Local co-founder, Paul West.
The pair will appear at LEAF alongside a range of interactive presentations and workshops from leading sustainability experts.
Environment Chair Cr Jon Raven said LEAF would once again attract thousands of green thumbs to Logan.
“LEAF’s popularity is growing, especially with young people and residents who care about the environment,” Cr Raven said.
“Our city prides itself on our green credentials and is a treasure chest of talent and innovation when it comes to sustainability.
“It’s not just Logan that loves LEAF, this has become an ecotourism event with people coming from across the country to see how we can reduce, reuse, repair and recycle.”
