Parks Alive is a free weekend festival that will showcase the very best of Roma St Parkland. It is on the 4th and 5th August.
There’ll be kids’ activities, music and food trucks, guided walks, workshops and educational talks. Roma St Parkland is spread over 16 hectares and offers designer gardens, sprawling lawns, free BBQs and children’s playgrounds.
Jack Stone will be leading educational walks that educate visitors about the importance of bugs in food production. His company “Bee One Third” has installed urban beehives around south east Queensland. There are over 100 and several in Roma St Parkland.
Visitors on his guided walk will be able to learn about the hives and taste the honey.
Renowned chef Cameron Matthews will be holding educational cooking demonstrations during Parks Alive. He will be teaching about his innovative approach to cooking. Cameron is passionate about cooking sustainably by not throwing anything away.
For example, he uses the full zucchini, the seeds of a pumpkin. Stems, roots, leaves, flowers. He throws nothing away and proves that there can be a use for anything.
