The Green Ball is Australia’s first Green Carpet Event – a glamorous celebration of sustainable food, fashion and fun, created by Melbourne’s own sustainable events company, Grassroots Productions.
This new exciting, not to be missed event takes place Saturday 23rd of February 2013, as part of the Sustainable Living Festival calendar. The Green Ball will be held in one of Melbourne’s best kept venue secrets – a stunning bluestone heritage building overlooking the Maribyrnong River, quietly nestled amongst the lush wetlands of Pipemakers Park. This unique venue also offers picturesque views towards Flemington Racecourse and the city, a mere 6km from the CBD.
