Cottage Eco Market

Saturday 14 November 2020
11am – 2pm
Stromlo Cottage, Noffs Cres Coombs

A host of stallholders will be involved to get you excited about upcycling and sustainability.

The Eco Market will launch a recycled sculpture commissioned by Molonglo Conservation Group as park of a Molonglo River clean up activity.

Two local Canberra artists constructed the sculpture and will be there to talk to the community about the process of the artwork.

This event will highlight our future in a more sustainable environment. The market is an opportunity for the local community to recycle surplus household goods and learn more about how we can reduce our carbon footprint in the environment.

Resident stalls of fashion and household goods for sale, along with a few stalls related to environmentally friendly initiatives, will make for an awesome market.

Funds raised at this event will go to the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife.

Entry into the cottage market is ticketed – please register here.
