About The Sustainability FairAn Annual Event for Sustainable Living
The Fair came about from a meeting of likeminded neighbours and friends in the early 2000’s who wanted to share and promote technologies to reduce carbon change. Since then we have evolved to being an event to share skills, information, products, workshops, speakers, and organisations that make it easier to live sustainably.
Volunteer with the Fair
The Sustainability Fair is run by members of the Association. We are a friendly group of people, committed to promoting “Sustainability”. We come from all around Adelaide but many of us are located close to Uraidla. We come together to put on a fun, informative and interesting day where groups promote and discuss simple ways to become more sustainable.
We are always happy to meet new helpers and welcome people:
- On the day
- Before and after
- As part of the organising group
- For other events and activities

What is Sustainability?
Being more sustainable may mean growing a few veggies in your back yard, installing solar hot water, or solar panels, composting, irrigating more efficiently, rehabilitating local areas or simply becoming involved in your local community.
What ever sustainability means to you, we hope that we might inspire you make a difference.
Uraidla & Summertown Show
We work very closely with the Uraidla & Summertown Show and we thank them for their continual support and very kind lend of the beautiful show grounds for our fantastic Fair. Both of our volunteers tend to give up time to help out at each event which is a great reflection of our amazing community spirit.
The Sustainability Fair distributes funds to local and international projects that aim to increase sustainability and reduce carbon emissions.
Since the Fair started we have contributed funds to the following projects:
- Sunfunder grants for solar power in developing countries.
- Solar Panels for the Basket Range Cricket Club
- Creation of a solar powered 12 volt trailer for community emergencies.
- Donation of an underwater camera for documenting reef restoration and education in Fiji.
- Donations to Australian Youth for Climate Change
We are currently looking at a creative solution to providing a water bottle refill station in Uraidla.
