If ever there was a buzz about a Brisbane environment event, it has to be the one surrounding the upcoming Green Earth Festival taking place on Saturday 13 March at the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens.

This wide-ranging festival is focused firmly on the family and includes everything you need for a day out such as stalls, food, speakers, live music and entertainment, kids’ zone, video zone, as well as short film, art and fashion competitions.

The Green Earth Festival is being organised by the fledging, not-for-profit environmental awareness group, Green Earth Group Inc. which began early last year when like-minded friends of singer/poet and author Leigh-Chantelle’s saw the need for a uniting of the environmental and animal rights groups.

Combining with these friends who have the passion are others who have the know-how: people who have been involved with large music festivals such as the Big Day Out. This combination, according to Green Earth Festival organiser and promoter Leigh-Chantelle, is what makes the magic happen!

“My goal is to encourage all people from all backgrounds in Queensland to be involved in a positive way to help our environment and to meet other like-minded individuals,” says Leigh-Chantelle.

The Green Earth Festival is a free, family orientated, community event which aims to stimulate awareness by bringing environmental, green, health and lifestyle, cruelty-free, recycling and sustainable issues into the public eye; and encouraging people to make simple changes in their everyday lives to help our environment and the world we leave for generations to come.

The festival will comprise live bands, performers and roving entertainment, food, demonstrations, speakers, children’s zone, video zone, art and fashion displays, plus stalls from many companies including local not for profit organizations.

Together with many other volunteers from across Brisbane and beyond, the Green Earth Festival team are united to form a strong grassroots, community event where everyone from all areas of the community are invited to join in with the passion, but most of all in having fun in the name of green earth education.
