The BIG Weekend of Sustainable Living Ideas set to make its mark in Brighton this March

by Brighton Council

Whether you are a local business, community group, a school or an environmentally conscious com­munity member, the BIG Weekend of Sustainable Living Ideas is for you!

Hosted by Sustainable Living Tas­mania as part of their 50th birth­day celebrations, the BIG Weekend will take over both the Brighton Civic Centre and the Botanical In­stitute, just a short walk down the road, on 25-26 March, 2023.

This innovative event aims to connect community members, businesses and organisations with projects, initiatives and education pathways to encourage households and businesses to adopt sustain­able practices. It’s also about show­ing people how to save money on their household budgets and about connecting with their communi­ty to improve mental health and wellbeing.

The weekend will include work­shops, presentations, forums, and activities, including a no-dig vege garden workshop hosted by Gardening Australia and Goodlife Permaculture’s Hannah Moloney, as well as cooking demonstrations by Matthew Evans from Fat Pig Farm, using a kitchen powered by an electric vehicle. If something a little more serious is your focus, join us for the forums each after­noon to listen to a panel of pro­fessionals discuss topics involving issues and initiatives surrounding waste reduction and food produc­tion in Tasmania.

Many of the activities over the weekend will focus on recycling, upcycling and reusing what we have, with community members invited to participate in clothing, book and toy swaps and the repair cafes. There will also be free plants, the chance to try multicultural food, pottery classes, children’s adventure play, and plans to also include an Art to Waste Sculpture trail engaging the local schools.

Expressions of interest are still open with a limited number of exhibitor sites still available, as well as opportunities to host sustainable living workshops and activities.
