On the 30th of May, Chermside will be host to the Brisbane City Council’s Green Heart Fair. Residents will be able to enjoy free native plants and access to the city’s leading experts in sustainability and in practical ways to lead an eco-friendly life.
Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner is optimistic that it will offer local residents and businesses the motivation to become a ‘Waste Warrior’.
“When it comes to sustainability, we all have to start somewhere, and small, everyday decisions by households will continue to have a big impact on our city’s sustainability,” he said.
“From composting tips to how to keep bees at home, Green Heart Fair will feature more than 120 of Brisbane’s leading experts with innovative environmentally-friendly products and services, as well as a whole day of talks covering a range of sustainable living topics.
“Attendees will also be invited to enjoy some of Brisbane’s best local food trucks with more plant-based food options than ever before, and more than 3000 native plants will be available for residents to grow at home or in the local community.”
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, The 2020 Green Heart Fair was relegated online. This year, it returns to 7th Brigade Park, Newman Road, Chermside, where it offers options for everyone of all ages (and gardening skills). It will be held on Sunday the 30th of May from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, and attendees are encouraged to bus, ride, or walk to the fair.
