Residents across St Albans, Harpenden and the villages are invited to get involved with this year’s Sustainability Festival (SustFest21) by joining in with more than 150 COVID-safe events across the district.
St Albans Sustainable Market will kick off the festival on Sunday, May 23 followed by two weeks of events until June 6. The festival aims to encourage everyone to live more sustainably and connect with nature.
Many events are free and include guided and self-guided walks, films, craft sessions, online workshops and talks. Subjects covered are wide ranging: from local trees to hedgehogs, reusable nappies to wildlife gardening, solar panels to cooking demos.
Jill Watson, chair of the SustFest21 Volunteer Working Group said: “We are delighted to announce such a hugely varied programme for SustFest21. There is something for every resident in the district to enjoy whatever your age or interests.”
Thousands of children from schools, Scouting, Guiding and other youth groups across the District will be involved in SustFest21 Schools Week from May 24-28.
The full SustFest21 programme will be live at www.sustfest.org at the beginning of May.
