Lighthouses - shining the way
The light eminating from Greenfest was positively blinding. The grand lighthouse of them all was Greenfest founder, Colman Ridge. Graham Readfearn of The Courier-Mail has written more about Colman's story
How exciting though to find a group of young people devoting their time to a sustainable future. As part their community education outreach, the Queensland Youth Environment Council were running seedling workshops. One of the QYEC team visited our stall to show us the paper pot maker they were using to make little seedling pots from recycled newspaper. We were thrilled to see the useful life this little Biome product was having. The story, however, is about the young leaders who are members of the QYEC and their work for our planet's future.

Biome team sets up our green theme display.
Do you have a story from Greenfest or can you tell us about someone who is a Lighthouse?
