Riddells Creek residents are getting ready for a trifecta of sustainability focused community events on Saturday, March 16, at the Riddells Creek Primary School.

Located at 77 Main Road, Riddells Creek, the day will start at 9am and will include the infamous Riddells Creek Farmers Market, a community group expo and an Enviro Energy Expo.

The farmers market will set attendees up for a sustainable family Easter with a range of local produce including flowers, fudge on offer, fruit, vegetables, pastries, bread and of course coffee to start the day.

The community expo will be located at the school’s performing arts centre and will run until noon, showcasing a range of clubs and organisations the community can get involved in to make connections.

Winners of the Giant Zucchini Competition, run by the Riddells Creek Neighbourhood House will be announced as part of the expo, with categories including the widest, heaviest and best dressed.

Neighbourhood house community development manager Lisa Linton said an array of great prizes will be on offer.

“This is the second year running for the competition and there is strong competition to beat last year’s records” she said.

The inaugural Enviro Energy Expo will begin at noon and according to lead event organisers, it promises to provide practical solutions for the home, the planet and our pockets.

The expo runs until 4.30pm and is organised by Riddells Creek Cool Changes in partnership with What Riddell Wants, in the aim to support people to find solutions and plan towards implementing them.
