Living Smart Festival
Park Road, Speers Point, NSW, 2284, Australia
23rd September 2017
The Living Smart Festival promises to be a fun day out for people to explore how they can adopt sustainable practices in their everyday life. The festival will again begin with a mass yoga session in the park for hundreds to enjoy moving and stretching together in the open air. Festivalgoers can then enjoy wandering around the Lake Macquarie City Farmers Market, purchasing and sampling local produce, as well as exploring the 100 plus stores of local artisan markets, sustainable businesses and community groups and activities. The Festival is a fun, family day out with low-waste cooking and sustainable living demonstrations, backyard inspiration and sustainable fashion. Kids’ activities include drumming, yoga, sustainable craft, face painting and feeding and cuddling animals from Hunter Valley Zoo. Visitors can explore their ‘Backyard Garden’ set up to inspire changes at home, and learn from experts in fields such as permaculture, worm farming, bee keeping, recycled pallet conversion and more. The relaxed festival vibe encourages visitors to enjoy listening to local artists, taste local produce from a variety of food trucks offering an international cuisine, and interact with many of the activities provided for the event from the local community.
