The Stanthorpe Eco Expo will offer visitors fun and informative ways to taste, see, talk, touch and learn about all things sustainable.
Keynote speaker, Jerry Coleby-Williams from ABC’s Gardening Australia and well known for creating ‘Bellis’; a sustainable house and garden, will explain how modern science and traditional production systems can be more productive, and less expensive, than industrial farming.
Displays, stalls and interactive exhibits by Granite Belt organisations and business owners will provide opportunities to try organic food, learn about renewable energy, discover ways to reduce waste, create healthier gardens and purchase sustainable products.
In the main tent, following their presentations, speakers will answer audience questions about waste, regenerative farming with animals, solar power production, large scale organic farming and sustainable food production. When visitors are ready for a rest, in the nearby gardens they will be entertained by musicians Penny Davies & Roger Ilott.
