More than forty exhibitors and activities will be on show at the FREE Goodness Exhibition on Saturday 23rd August between 10 and 3pm at Queen Elizabeth II Centre on Durlacher St.
The Exhibition aims to make it easy and inspiring for anyone to learn about and use the latest environmental technologies and most beneficial social services. From telescopes to solar panels, bouncy castles to bikes, and green walls to health products…there’s something fascinating and fun for everyone.
In addition to stalls and exhibits, the exhibit will include:
- Door prizes worth thousands of dollars,
- Floor talks and activities on gardening, craft, engineering and technology,
- Kids entertainment,
- Food and drinks for sale.
Mark Canny, exhibition organiser said, “The exhibition is the single most popular event of the Goodness Festival. It’s so popular because it’s free, fun, and the best opportunity to ask questions, see new ideas and technologies first-hand, and to learn from the experts.”
This year exhibitors include:
- Solar, wind and water efficient technology for homes and business
- Eco-friendly cleaning, stationery and kitchen products to buy,
- Electric vehicles and bicycles to view and test,
- Gardening, conservation and cooking displays,
- Recycled furniture and products for home and business,
- Volunteering, mentoring and educational opportunities.
“This is a quite rare opportunity, to learn about and potentially win everything that the socially-responsible consumer and citizen could want, at one event.”
