Go Green and have fun

Festival season is on its way and there's plenty to enjoy in the coming months. One such festival is Riverfest, in south-western Sydney, with a focus around environmental sustainability and the celebration of cultural differences in the community.

Sustainable gardening
No plastic pots here

Held in Koshigaya Park, you can gain lots of ideas and tips on sustainable gardening as well as taking part in educational workshops. Children can learn where their food comes from and enjoy craft projects involving recyclable materials. The creative juices will flow with them making superhero accessories, from masks to crowns and x-ray vision goggles.

Incredible Hulk
Superheroes Rule

Captain America
Who's your favourite?

There's a big superhero theme in the entertainment as well with the Marvel's Avengers taking the stage for shows where Captain America, Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk combat evil to protect the ozone layer and save the planet.

Other entertainment includes traditional dance groups, music and an interactive show from Madam Mulch and the Great Fertiliso, inspiring budding gardeners. The Get Wild Animal Experience Show will provide encounters with various creatures and talks on wildlife conservation.

Get up close with curious creatures

Perhaps you might want to learn Kurdish dancing or create some sun prints. You can do both and more. Pick up a Riverfest Passport and go on a Discovery Trail collecting stamps for completing different activities and be in the running to win some great prizes.
