Countdown to Green Earth Festival

With less than two weeks until Brisbane’s newest environmental event, the countdown is well and truly on for Green Earth Festival taking place on Saturday 13 March at the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens.

This wide-ranging festival will comprise live bands, performers and roving entertainment; green cuisine, demonstrations, speakers, children’s zone, video zone, art and fashion displays, plus stalls from many companies including local not for profit organisations.

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

Leigh-Chantelle Koch is a one-woman powerhouse, the driving force behind Green Earth Festival who is extremely pleased with the amount of support, assistance and dedication she has found in many of the volunteers from Brisbane and beyond. “People see that Green Earth Festival is coming from a sincere and positive place and people want to get involved from the grassroots up in helping us enact the positive changes that are needed in our society,” says Leigh-Chantelle.

Combining with these passionate volunteers and friends 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. “Every single person involved with Green Earth Festival has volunteered their time, energies and skills for the day and lead up to the day,” says Leigh-Chantelle. “We have had an overwhelming response from people young and old who want to be involved and I thank each and every person.”

Green Earth Festival is a free, family orientated, drug and alcohol free 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.

“My goal is to encourage all people from all backgrounds to be involved in a positive way to help our environment and to meet other like-minded individuals,” says Leigh-Chantelle. “Anyone can get involved with helping each other, our animal friends and the universe. It doesn’t matter what age, sex or colour you are, what job you do, what your hobbies are, if you are willing to you can change yourself and others by your example.”

It’s easy being green and Leigh-Chantelle and her comrades are here to show you how.
