BEC’s vision is focused on getting more trees in the ground and says planting natives is ideal for our environment, good for the soil and attracts beneficial bugs and birds.

Running for 33 years, the Bellingen Plant Fair is held every second Saturday of March-Autumn and September-Spring and proudly showcases a large number of growers and traders from the Mid North Coast who sell quality plants at fair prices while sharing what they know.

“We are fortunate to have such a ‘one of a kind’ event on the Mid North Coast,” Kaz Selbie, Manager of the Fair, told News of the Area.

“The Bellingen Plant Fair is popular because people understand the importance of plants, especially natives, they want to be sustainable and care for our environment.

“They also want to grow chemical free food for maximum nutrition, flavour and energy and if they can’t grow their own they buy from local markets, such as the Bellingen Growers Market who join us,” Kaz said.

The organisers aim to be a good example when it comes to waste at the event, with green, yellow, and red bins available.

They are determined to reduce waste and support 100 pecent recycling.

Bin vigilantes will be on site encouraging all to do the right thing.

Delicious hot and cold food, drinks and coffee are on the menu along with chilled acoustic music by Thoughts & Prayers, who are local duo Brett Barber and Deb Spillane.

There is a herb workshop at 9.30am and talks on stage throughout the day.

The big plant raffle gets drawn around 1pm and home-made cakes are on offer.

Local organisations such as the Bellingen Environment Centre, Bellingen Seed Savers, Bellingen Landcare,
Biodynamic Agriculture Australia and Bellingen Council will also be there to answer your questions.

“It’s always a bloomin good day at the Bellingen Plant Fair,” welcomed Kaz.

The Plant Fair is open from 8am to 2pm.
