The first EcoFestival Cyprus will take place in Nicosia on Sunday, May 11.
The 11am-7pm event ill be held at the Acadamias Park on Larnacos Ave. in Aglandjia.
"The aim of the event is to promote the direct link between the producer and consumer, clean and quality food for all, the locality of products, accessible and fair prices," the organisers said.
The happening also aims at encouraging people to revisit traditional methods, reconnect with nature and disconnect from industrialisation "and the careless commercialisation of everything, collective undertakings and cooperation".
A number of local producers of chemical and fertiliser-free edibles will be taking part as well as those producers of products created with respect for the environment including cleaning products and cosmetics as well as handicrafts.
Organisations encouraging ecology and sustainability will also be represented informing visitors of their activities ranging from the creation of urban vegetable gardens to recycling. There will, in addition, be a number of workshops on related activities.
EcoFestival Cyprus will also include cultural entertainment, a children's corner with eco-oriented activities and presentations.
The event is being organised by Amarantos, Anakyklos Perivallontiki, Ellovos and Kyprion Sporoi, Kinima Zois Kyprou and Outopia Kolektiva with the support of Aglandjia Municipality, the Forestry Department and To Koukounari coffee shop.
