Learn about keeping bees, enjoy some of the Peninsula’s best music and even make your own pedal-powered smoothie at the 2019 Balnarring Community Sustainability Fair. Run as a twilight event on Saturday, October 12, from 4-7pm, the fair will be held in the leafy grounds of Balnarring Primary School and the surrounding Balbirooroo Wetlands and will include a Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony performed by a representative of the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
There will be fun activities, vibrant market stalls, an art auction, hands-on workshops, live music, and fine Peninsula food and wine, all combining to create a festive atmosphere as the sun sets. Workshops and stalls will explore everything from backyard chickens to growing your own mushrooms and keeping bees, while students will provide sustainable offerings from their stalls, including herb seedlings, bush animal sculptures, reusable Christmas trees and more.
Proceeds from the fair will go towards the school’s literacy program and the care and maintenance of the wetlands. For more information, visit www.balnarringsusfair.com.au or call the school on 5931 4444.
