Finished pack palaceThe tent looked great with heaps of produce from our gardeners (pictured), a recycled tyre compost bin, ecocleaners, a reusable bike and thanks to Lesley for her cool poster on how the EcoDesign Advisor helped warm up a renovated room in her home. There was also a cool pallet compost bin made by local builder John Wraight – thanks John!

There were plenty of visitors to talk to and we still had time to play the ukelele, drink silverbeet smoothies and check out these cool microgreen caterpillars made by kids who visited the tent.  Thanks to the irrepressible Diane Turner for materials and instructions.
