This year's expo is a celebration of gardens, lifestyle and sustainability. The definition of a sustainable life is that everything remains in balance. The study of sustainability looks at how we can live in harmony with the natural world while using new technologies and still protecting it from damage and destruction.

There is plenty happening throughout the day and while you are listening to the lectures or purchasing from the market stalls, your children will be entertained with fun craft activities. For $2.00 entry, they can learn the art of Lapidary at the kid's workshop.
