The first ever auction of ethically traded and locally sourced goods will be among the attractions at the Birmingham GreenFest, which takes place at Birmingham Botanical Gardens on Saturday, 7 March.
Previously known as the Sustainability Spring Fair, the Birmingham GreenFest offers a family day out promoting sustainable lifestyles in a fun and educational way through interactive art activities, entertainment and food.
In addition to the auction, held by Birmingham auctioneers Biddle & Webb, the event will also include Bollywood dance performances, Birmingham Fair Trade and Ethical Market selling a range of locally sourced and fairly traded produce, a variety of environmentally themed arts and crafts workshops for children, Love Food Hate Waste cookery demonstrations and food tasting, the â€˜Living Earthâ€™ performance art intervention and a wide range of sustainable and green exhibitors.
The event, which runs from 10am to 4pm, also marks Climate Week 2015 and Fair Trade Fortnight.
Admission is just Â£2 for adults (including access to the grounds and Victorian glass houses of the gardens) and free for under-16s.
