Date published: 9 March 2022

Save the date to celebrate 30 years of the Eco Fiesta at Anderson Gardens this June.

The 30th anniversary celebration will bring keynote speakers, sustainable food, a new film festival and a world record attempt to the largest botanic garden in Townsville on the first weekend of June.

Community and Cultural Development Committee chairperson Ann-Maree Greaney said the event would shine a spotlight on the role that pollinators play in Townsville’s natural environment.

“The buzz around town is that Council is planning a bee-focused Eco Fiesta for this June with thousands of native and European bees visiting,” Cr Greaney said.

“Council has a longstanding commitment to increasing sustainable practices both in the organisation and across the city. We are lucky to live in such an ecologically diverse part of the world and it’s our collective responsibility to keep our land and ocean as pristine as possible.

“The Eco Fiesta has been running since 1992 and helps increase public awareness around environmental issues and how to increase sustainability around the home and in business.”

Eco Fiesta will run from 4:30pm Saturday 4 June and from 9am Sunday 5 June at Anderson Gardens.
