Bushfire Resilience and Adaption EXPO
On Sunday 5th December the Sarsfield Recreation Reserve and Hall will be transformed into the site for the 2021 Bushfire Resilience and Adaption Expo. The concept driven by the Sarsfield Community Association will bring together a range of exhibitors showcasing products which will support rebuilding, retrofitting and preparing us for any future extreme events.
Another key feature of the expo will be presentations made by renowned “ expert” individuals and panels, discussing such things as building design, landscaping, pumps and sprinkler systems, navigating building and planning permits, biodiverse designs, mental health and wellbeing, managing and supporting pets and livestock and community and personal recovery.
CSIRO scientist Justin Leonard, Building expert Peter Collina, Architect Ian Weir, Clinical Psychologist David Younger, Senior Vet with Agriculture Victoria (and local) Dianne Phillips join us to provide high level advice and information. Black Snake Productions will provide a snake pit and wildlife shows, Wacky Wombat will present a range of interactive children’s activities and local musicians Todd Cook and Olivia Lay will keep our toes tapping throughout the day. The Royal Flying Doctor Counselling Service will provide a youth focus and the CFA and DELWP will offer advice and displays.
