If you're all about thinking green, living in a more eco-conscious way and doing your utmost for the planet — as we all should be — then you likely already know about Brisbane's Green Heart Fair. This event regularly takes over a leafy public space to celebrate sustainability, all by giving away plants, teaching attendees about relevant topics, serving up plant-based food truck dishes and hosting artisan markets selling locally made wares. And, when it returns for autumn 2023, it's hosting its 15th event.

Mark 9am–3pm on Sunday, May 28 in your diary, with all of the above is on the agenda once again. Also part of the fair, which'll be settling into the 64-hectare expanse that is Victoria Park / Barrambin in Herston: an art installation that celebrates the site; learning about the park's Indigenous history; an educational walking tour; and workshops on sustainability, gardening and other related subjects.

If adding some greenery to your yard has particularly piqued your interest, there'll be native plants on offer — all for free. They're available on a first-come, first-served basis, so arriving early is recommended.

And, the fair also spans live tunes, plus activities for kids. This time around, the latter includes a Bluey show — for real life.
