About this event

We are excited to announce the return of the Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF) on Sunday 4 June, 2023.

LEAF is our community’s opportunity to celebrate everything eco while exploring how we can all reduce, reuse and recycle to create a more sustainable world and future.

Learn to make sustainable choices one LEAF at a time. Our main stage and workshops will feature interactive presentations from some of our country’s leaders in sustainability, gardening and waste reduction! Plus eco-exhibitors, plant sale, hands-on workshops, eco-markets and fun kids’ activities. You’ll be sure to take away many big and small tips to live a more sustainable lifestyle!

Entry to LEAF is FREE. Workshop and activities are also free and are on a first come, first in basis. Stocks are limited at some activities.

LEAF is a pet-free and alcohol-free event.
