If you haven’t already experienced the first jam-packed weeks of the Eco-Festival, do not worry! The festival is set until 30 September, so there is plenty of time to get involved.

There are events almost every day and weekend, including the St Ives Showground Markets, a sculpture trail, bird walks, live performances, seed collection workshops, nature journaling, and much more.

Ku-ring-gai Council is hosting the event to bring the community together and show real life techniques which will help keep our planet healthy for future generations.

The festival, which will host free and low cost events, is about all things green and encourages your participation.
