If you're looking for some 'koalality' tips on green living, look no further than this year's Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF).

Griffith University's Logan campus will be in full bloom in just a few weeks' time when the popular festival returns for 2014.

Parks, Health, Environment and Sustainability Committee Chairperson, Councillor Trevina Schwarz (Division 11), said the event was a must-do for anyone looking to live more sustainably or find out about simple ways to help the environment.

"If you've ever considered branching out into sustainability, or even simply growing your own veggies, make tracks to this year's LEAF," she said.

"There will be displays on a huge range of topics, from compost to chicken keeping, urban gardening right through to solar panel installation, clean energy and how to live in harmony with native wildlife.

"You don't have to be an eco-warrior or hardcore environmentalist to get something out of LEAF, just a passion for nature and an open mind.

"I certainly couldn't bear to miss it and I hope to see as many residents as possible planting the seeds for a better future."

LEAF 2014 is a free event and will be held on Sunday 8 June at Griffith University Logan Campus, Meadowbrook, from 10am.
