Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF)
LEAF 2013 was held on Sunday 2 June and was a great day for all involved. The weather held out for the approximate 6000 people who came along to enjoy the live music, organic food, children's activities and environmental workshops!
Thank you to everyone involved in making this event the success that it was, we look forward to seeing everyone again for LEAF 2014.
Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF) is Logan's most successful environmental event promoting eco-living tips in a free, fun, family environment. The last two LEAF events have attracted over 9,000 people who were eager to learn how to live their lives more sustainably. LEAF 2013 is dedicated to reducing food and general waste at the event and we need your help to do this.
Kick back with some cool beats at LEAF
Each year LEAF sees up-and-coming musicians and bands perform at LEAF. This year we were very lucky to have Mark Lowndes from Australia's Got Talent, performing for us on the main stage. We were also entertained by the Brisbane based country urban outfit, Will Day and the Alibis and The Twine.
So much to see and do
There is always heaps of activities and rides for the little kids and big kids. LEAF 2013 activities included face painters, live wildlife and bug displays. There was a pedal powered cinema which screened the Bag It documentary. All this plus a rock wall, giant slide, segways, henna tattoo, science experiments and much much more.
We are dedicated to reducing the amount of waste that goes into landfill. You can help by bringing your own water bottle or even your own plate and cutlery rather than using disposable ones. Check out the factsheet (PDF 152 KB) for more tips. Please remember, LEAF is a plastic bag free event.
There were plenty of prizes won, with a local family winning a farmstay holiday, others winning tickets to shows at the Logan Entertainment Centre, and hundreds of eco products were given away!
