Have you always wondered what urban sustainable living looks like in reality? The Hulbert Street Sustainability Fiesta on the last weekend in September (Sept 24th and 25th) is your change to find out.
Hulbert Street is just a regular street of about 30 houses off Douro Road in South Fremantle, but each year they open their doors and their hearts so others can see what life is like in “Fremantle’s Most Sustainable Street”.
With two open sustainable homes, five open gardens and five open art studios, you are sure to leave inspired and full of plans for your place. This year a special Show and Tell area will allow you to interact with others who are willing to share some aspect of their sustainable journey – from keeping bees, to making soap, preserving your garden harvest to keeping chickens. And there is lots of free fun for the whole family – from the popular wood working stall, to art and craft activities, the fairy garden and two busking areas. A range of colourful stall holders include many community groups, local artists and companies selling sustainable products ranging from solar panels and water tanks to cloth nappies and organic seedlings.
We recommend bringing the whole family and staying for the whole weekend! And if you have been before, come again – with a new street mural, pizza oven, a rabbit breeding program and street goats we are sure you will be re inspired for your own sustainable journey!
Entry to the Fiesta is by donation, so come along, share and be inspired.
