For those of you in Melbourne this weekend, treat yourself and head on down to Federation Square and Birrarung Marr for the annual Sustainable Living Festival. It is the premier event on the sustainable living calendar for the year!
I go every year and it is so much fun. I take along a few friends and whatever kids happen to be living at home at the time, and spend an entire day there. I love all of the presentations, and the green market, which has so much information for those who are wondering about the green/sustainable lifestyle. It invigorates and inspires me to do better.
Here is my posts about the festival in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. A great review of what the festival is all about. I especially like the food and this is one of the places that I fell in love with a good vegetarian curry! I can’t wait to listen to what Michael Reynolds (aka The Garbage Warrior) has to say for himself this year. He was hoot last year.
So if you are in the city, come along and join the fun. I will be there some of Friday afternoon, and all day Sunday. We may even cross paths. You will know me when you see me. I will be the silver bearded guy wearing the black “The Greening of Gavin” T-Shirt. You can’t miss me really!

See you there.
