The Hepburn Shire Council is preparing to host the Sustainable Hepburn Day Out at Daylesford’s Victoria Park on Saturday March 16.

The returning event will feature workshops and activities which align with the four focus areas of the Sustainable Hepburn Strategy: learn how to electrify your home (Beyond Zero Emissions); learn how to garden for wildlife (Nature Conservation and Biodiversity); learn about how to run a zero-waste kitchen (Low Waste); and sign up to play the Adaptation Game with your neighbours (Climate Resilience).

The event will offer fun and interactive ways to manage household waste, with a focus on the council’s new food and organic service scheduled to start in early April.

Mayor, Cr Brian Hood says the event will be a fun day out for the whole family and will showcase some of the businesses and community organisations addressing issues of sustainability in the shire. 

“There will be live music, games, a treasure hunt, local food and drinks, alongside workshops, art and interactive displays to help the community with their sustainability journey at home and at work,”Cr Hood said.

“A highlight of the day will be the circular fashion precinct with the chance for community members to pick up op shop bargains and to craft costumes from waste for the circular catwalk.

“I encourage the community to come along and learn more about what we’re doing and how they can take more action to protect our environment,” Cr Hood said.

“There will be a bin audit as a display and Sustainability Victoria’s Resource Smart Schools will be there with activities.  There will also be fun activities for kids around waste sorting and there will be a composting guru offering advice for adults,” he said.

The council will also launch its Circular Economy Business Toolkit at the event while the Hepburn Wildlife Shelter will also use the fair to launch their Living with Wildlife pamphlet.
