Coffs Harbour Sustainable Living Day, being held this Sunday
1 November at the North Coast Regional Botanic Gardens in Coffs Harbour, will
officially open the Living Coast Festival which runs for the month of November.
The festival celebrates the natural beauty of the Bellingen, Coffs Harbour and
Nambucca regions and provides sustainable living inspiration along with
opportunities to explore our wonderful natural landscape.
Sunday’s highlights will include presentations by special
guest Costa Georgiadis, host of ABC’s
Gardening Australia, the opportunity to learn more about sustainable living,
solar powering your home, how to remove weeds from your garden, and stalls
selling native plants and sustainable gifts.
The Kids Zone will keep the littlies entertained with a live
reptile show, story time and hands on craft and gardening activities.
The community can also explore the gardens on a free guided
Coffs Creek Bush Tucker Walk with an Aboriginal National Parks and Wildlife
Service Ranger and Solitary Islands Marine Park Guide.
Live entertainment and delicious food will be available on
the day and you can find out more about the many other activities happening
across the region during November.
“Your bushland, beaches, rainforests and waterways are what
makes Coffs Harbour so special and I am looking forward to exploring the region
as part of the Living Coast Festival” said Costa.
