2018 Partnership Packages

Held on Sunday 14 October 2018 at Edendale Community Farm, Gastons Road, Eltham. The Festival runs from 10am to 4:30pm and is a major event on the Nillumbik community calendar. The Festival aims to raise awareness on sustainable practices and facilitate behavioural change in our community.  It also provides businesses with a focus on sustainability to showcase their products and services. 

The Practically Green Services attracts over 3,000 people per year, who come along to find out more about sustainability and to get ideas on how they can reduce their environmental footprint.

Edendale comes alive, with music, a range of stalls, food and wine, demonstrations, talks and workshops. Take this opportunity for your business to get great publicity and promotion to this large audience, at a cost-effective price.
