THE Ocean Grove Park will transform on March 20 with live music, family activities, food stalls and an abundance of sustainable living information, during the second Earth Fest.

Running from 4.15pm- 7.30pm, Our Lady Star of the Sea Primary School’s earth friendly event seeks to “educate, promote and advocate for sustainable living now”, according to teacher Sue Constable.

“Our twilight community initiative, with a focus on sustainable living, is returning for a second year. The purpose of Earth Fest is to educate, promote and advocate for sustainable living now,” Ms Constable said.

“The school community, which includes student voice and agency, are busily preparing for the event, hoping to encourage everyone to make small changes to ensure a healthy existence for us all now and into the future.

“The awe-inspiring Wildlife Xposure group will take to the stage at 4:15pm to open the festival. The wonderful, local, Wild Art Forest School will be encouraging nature play for wellbeing and creativity, and Deakin University will also be helping us understand more about our connection to the Earth.”

The family friendly event will showcase stalls and displays from community groups, sustainable businesses and environmental organisations.

“Bring your family and friends and get involved in this great community event.”

Entry to the festival is a gold coin donation with proceeds going towards OLSOS’s outdoor learning area.
