The Earth Garden is a yearly festival that promotes the care for the environment and sustainability through arts, music and culture in a holistic way. Local and international established bands and up-and-coming talents performed throughout the weekend on different stages while local retailers and artisans offered their products. A number of workshops and activities promoting sustainable living were delivered, from discussions on conscious businesses and conscious eating to an introduction to Permaculture and herbal medicine.

A series of activities were offered at Kopin’s stand throughout the weekend for children and adults, aimed at raising awareness about topics such as sustainable food consumption, climate change, human rights. Attention was also drawn to the important role of Fair Trade in ensuring the respect of workers’ rights world-wide and the ethical distribution of profits while engaging the public to challenge any preconceptions of developed and developing countries.
