Live and learn sustainability

The Sustainable Living Festival begins today, and continues this weekend, at Federation Square in Melbourne.

I learned so much from the first Festival I attended about three years ago, before they moved to their current location at Fed Square. I would urge you to go if you're in Melbourne, and learn a lot about how we can live more sustainably and minimise our negative impact on the planet.

Besides the exhibitors flogging everything from solar cells to organic compost, they have a programme of speakers talking about a range of things, from alternative energy to organic food to permaculture to our urban environment. Interestingly, there are a couple of sessions on children, child-rearing and parenting this year.

Sounds good. I'll be there on Saturday. While you're there, catch the re-opened major
exhibition of Indigenous art at NGV Australia.
