Katanning EcoWeek started in 2014 and was quickly adopted by our community as an important program. Every September, we run a wide variety of workshops and events to help focus people’s attention on the ways they can make a difference. From art and photography and shop front window displays, to workshops on everything from arboretums to worms, we have seen a huge response from our community for the need for these events. We’ve also been attracted visitors from further abroad, and have been struck time-and-again with the message that Katanning is “Surprisingly Sustainable”.
Katanning EcoWeek coincides with the annual Bloom Festival, a Great Southern festival focusing on the spring wildflower season. We are delighted to be a part of this much bigger event. Events have been supported by FRRR, Shire of Katanning, GSDC, SGIO, and through the support of generous individuals, who provide invaluable time, money and resources to the running of these community events.
