Post-Festival News & Upcoming Autumn Events
Green Skills ran a series of very successful community festivals between January and April 2019: the South Coast Festival of Birds and Biodiversity, the Great Southern Sustainable Community Festival, the Sunsmart Kite Fiesta and the Denmark Not Waste Festival. A BIG Thank You to everyone who got involved: our staff, festival volunteers, workshop & gallery hosts, field event coordinators & researchers, and all the general public who participated in these events - it is your participation that made them the huge success that they were.
Also a big thanks to our sponsors and the funding organisation who supported Green Skills to make these community events possible.
