Sustainable Living Festival

It is that time of the year folks when Melbourne puts on one of the best festivals around, and one that is dear to my heart.  Yes, it is time for the Sustainable Living Festival.

Technically, this year, it runs from the 9th – 24th February, however it is the Big Weekend that really gets me excited, which is this weekend.  You can find the event guide at this link.

You will find it all in Melbourne, at Federation Square and Birrarung Marr in the middle of the city, close to to trains and trams, and bike lanes.  If you do come along, try and take a low impact transportation method.

As for me, well I am going along on Saturday 16th.  All day, with Ben, and our friends David and Liam, and as usual, we will be travelling via V-Line train and Metro.  It should be great fun as it is every year.

Also hoping to see Greg and Sophie who stayed with us way back last March and rode their bikes to Cairns.  I also hope to meet up with many other interesting and like-minded people.

I will be wearing my “Greening of Gavin” T-Shirt, so if you happen to catch a glimpse of me in your travels, stop and say gid’day.  I would love to meet some local readers and have a chat over an organic coffee.

Also don’t forget that as part of the greater festival, I will be presenting Energy Efficiency in the Home at the Ivanhoe Library on Tuesday 19th @ 7.00pm.  Bookings are essential.

See you all there.  I am so excited!

    Must have gone to top upymy free water bottle with the free water. It was very hot in the marquee. Hope you enjoyed the festival. I thought it was a bit smaller this year. There were a few new stalls that were quite interesting though
