I want to congratulate Lisa Audus and her dedicated team for organising and giving us the Lismore Health and Herb Festival. What a marvellous event and a demonstration of what a living and healthy community can do with a common goal. Private enterprise, local government, healers, the arts, sustainable business, market traders and volunteers coming together to create something truly magical. I dont know what the economic benefits to Lismore are, but I spent a heap because of, and during the festival, and I am just one ratepayer.
The festival had something for everyone, every age group catered for; baby boomers and their obsession with health and well-being, the youths in the skate park admiring/drooling over our amazingly talented local young bands, or tiny-tots goggling at the sights and listening to the music in between tantrums.
Like every evolving festival it needs tweaking. This can only be achieved through having more festivals; festivals like this that can bring the community together in a safe environment.
I am going to invite the whole North Coast, Australia and the rest of the world to next years festival. I invite all the people of Lismore to do the same. I hope it will be on.
Good luck and all the best for next year.
