Festival gets down to business

THE seeds of innovation will be sown at a farm planting today which will mark the start of a month-long festival.

The organic planting at Bonville is the start of the North Coast NSW Innovation Festival which will boast a series of individual events conducted from April 26 to May 31, from Tweed Heads to Forster-Tuncurry.

Each festival event will feature aspects of innovation, creativity, sustainability, education, knowledge or entrepreneurialism.

“Innovation plays an important role in business as well as our everyday lives because it offers new opportunities and exciting ideas that everyone wants to know about. The NCIF gives everyone in our region the opportunity to showcase innovation in their business or to adopt these approaches and work smarter, not harder,” Mark Wolf from Greenspan Technologies said.

There are now more than 87 events on the North Coast Innovation Festival calendar.

The events list for the Mid North Coast is attached.

Full details of events can be found on the festival website www.ncinnovationfestival.com.au.
