More than 100 of Brisbane’s leading eco-experts will grace Green Heart Fair, bringing a hands-on day with workshops, green living ideas, eco-gardening and heaps more. Foodies will be spoilt for choice, with vegan and gluten-free options available – all in compostable packaging. Brisbane’s best artisans are joining the festival with crafty homemade goodies that are 100 percent locally made. Patrons are encouraged to bring a few essentials to the fair to ensure a good, clean day out – so don’t forget your hat, reusable water bottle, reusable coffee cup, your Go Card for public transport or a lock for your bike.
The whole family is invited, with heaps of kids activities to keep the little ones active – keep them busy with clay making, face-painting and giant games. The council’s marquee will have some special native visitors so keep an eye out. Attendees can mingle with Channel 7 Queensland personalities and have the chance to experience the pop-up news desk, while live entertainment from local bands will set the tone all day. If you’re planning to start the day off with a coffee fix, be sure to bring your reusable coffee cup to snag a discount. Be sure to head into the event early, as the first 2000 people to the fair can score a free native plant to add to their garden!
