Moreton Bay Eco Fest is excited to welcome Hannah Moloney on stage at the 2023 event. Hannah is an ABC Gardening Australia presenter, permaculturalist and climate activist.
Hannah spent more than two decades working with people in the garden, advocating for climate resilience and action. In 2013, she established Good Life Permaculture in Tasmania offering workshops to provide better landscapes and lives for the community.
Hannah's activism is driven by hope and the knowledge that ordinary humans are capable of doing extraordinary things especially when they work together.
Join Charlie Darling on stage in her quest to find dirtgirl and see if she can conquer the challenges to be the most eco-friendly person in the whole of the dirtgirlworld!
Can she compost, reduce, reuse, recycle, harvest rain water, plant a garden, swap and barter, use eco fuel, scare away predators naturally and last but not least, get grubby?
dirtgirl thinks it is all great fun and uses songs and games to navigate her way through the challenges. She phones a friend (just like in her TV show), asks the kids in the audience to help her out by joining in to prove that she has the eco factor!

Pop-Up Treasure Market
This year, our favourite second-hand store is joining Moreton Bay Eco Fest with a special treasure market pop-up stall!
Whether you want to come for a browse or find your next treasure, the pop-up stall is a great opportunity to shop for a bargain and give an unwanted item a second life.
The pop-up treasure market will be a cashless stall.
Our two treasure markets, located at Caboolture and Dakabin waste facilities, sell pre-loved items that have been donated or rescued from landfill. By buying or selling your second-hand items or choosing to reuse, you can keep items out of landfill. This reduces your carbon, waste and water footprint and contributes to City of Moreton Bay’s target to divert 70 percent of household waste from landfill by 2040.
