WA’s inaugural Act-Belong-Commit Permaculture Fest on Sunday October 2 will bring sustainability, organic gardening and food producing, as well as health and wellbeing groups together to share their stories and inspiration with the public in a celebration of all things permaculture.
Permaculture Fest will display best practice in sustainable living and demonstrate how permaculture-based thinking and action naturally leads towards a healthy and regenerative future.
Local ABC presenter Josh Byrne, the creators of Ecoburbia, Living Smart and Project Bunbury will all share their stories.
“It’s a free event welcoming anyone wanting to get more out of life,” PermacultureWest’s Charles Otway said.
“Grab this opportunity to walk, talk, eat, play, and learn about sustainable living with all of Perth’s community groups in one place.
“We will have loads of family fun with children’s nature play area/activities; waste and reuse education; recycling and re-skilling; urban agriculture; garden design, forgotten crafts and trades being demonstrated and on sale; music; entertainment, and even the Swan Valley Adventure Centre’s high ropes course and flying fox will be open.
“We want the festival to celebrate and share the great work community groups are doing every day in WA.”
The festival will close with the Formidable Vegetable Sound System band performing.
A free shuttle bus service will run every 15 minutes from the Midland Train station from 10am to 4pm, with the last bus leaving at 4.45pm.
