Mulberry Tree Festival

The idea for the festival occurred in 2008 when two parents of the Mulberry Tree Steiner Early Years Kindergarten (over a glass or two of wine) decided that the ideal fundraiser for the school ought to be a camp festival. They were veteran festival goers and thought “lets have a go ourselves”. They knew what they wanted, something small-scale, family-orientated, organic, eco-friendly and manageable. Above all it was going to be a festival for the children, all the events and activities would be for them – the parents would come a low second. The festival would also be a fund-raiser for the school, however that goal was a secondary consideration to the kids enjoyment and community building.

What happened was something quite wonderful.

Since 2008, the festival has been held in 2009, 2010 and 2012.
