Learn to Live In A Greener And Cleaner Way
Spring is a time of growth, regeneration and magic, and for thousands of years, human beings throughout the world have joyfully celebrated its welcome and much-anticipated advent, after the long chilly months of winter. The tradition of celebrating spring is still alive and well in the twenty-first century, and every year in Perth hundreds of festivals and fairs take place at this time of the year. If you're a local urban environmentalist, one spring fair that you might want to jot into your social planner is Perth's fourth annual Spring Eco Fest, which will be held at Forrest Place on Sunday October 23rd.

An initiative of the Conservation Council of Western Australia, the state's peak environmental organisation, the festival will showcase some of the more than one hundred local community groups that are its members. This year's event will feature food stalls, live music, Aboriginal cultural activities and special workshops for children. In addition, there will also be interactive workshops as well as talks on the environment, transport, recycling, gardening, and much more. Although many people have an interest in sustainable living these days, most of us are a little unsure about how to begin and the practical knowledge to make such changes in our life. Fortunately, however, there are plenty of experts in the wider community who are happy to help us out, and a visit to the Spring Eco Fair can point us in the right direction to pick up a few pointers from Western Australia's foremost sustainability gurus.
The wide variety of presentations, workshops and stalls offered at the Spring Eco Fest will provide visitors with an easy and very accessible way to learn about Western Australia's unique natural environment, experience the benefits of eco-friendly living and get actively involved in their local community. Whether you want to build an eco-friendly home, install renewable energy, learn about ethical investments, participate in an environmental campaign or join some local community group, this inspiring and informative spring festival promises to be a wonderful day out in the heart of the city.
