Extra large crowds were drawn to the Boroondara Farmers Market on Saturday November 19th, despite the threatening weather. And the special draw card? Why, the annual Boroondara Sustainable Living Festival of course, showcasing ways in which we can all help to ensure a sustainable future. From electric vehicles to solar panels, recycled books to sustainable gardening, there was lots to appeal to patrons of all ages. There is no doubt, however, that the biggest drawcard of all for the children was the native animal exhibit. Protecting our environment*, protecting our ecological diversity and protecting our children's future is a universal responsibility. There was no shortage of ideas as to how we can help at Saturday's Farmers Market.
* Protecting the Environment is one of the seven critical causes or Areas of Focus for The Rotary Foundation.
