Take part in Picnic for the Planet on Earth Day, with The Nature Conservancy at Prahran Market’s Market Square.

This very special event is part of a global, potentially record-breaking effort designed to celebrate the planet and the sustainable food it provides.

Dr James Fitzsimons, Director of Conservation at The Nature Conservancy, said, “The main point of Picnic for the Planet is simple: to give people a fun and easy way to enjoy Earth Day through the food they enjoy and with the people they love.”

This year marks the second annual Picnic for the Planet and the first such event in Melbourne.

“We are thrilled to be supported by Prahran Market, the oldest continuously running market in Australia,” Dr Fitzsimons said. “It’s known as ‘the food lovers’ market’ because of the quality and range of its vendors. It’s a perfect, open-air place for people to celebrate the planet and think about where their food comes from.”

Participants in the Prahran Market event will also have a shot at the record books. The Melbourne picnic is one of hundreds of The Nature Conservancy’s Picnics for the Planet happening worldwide that, collectively, will attempt to set the Guinness World Record™ for the most people picnicking in a 24-hour period.

The picnic will feature live music from local talent, cooking demonstrations and other family-friendly activities, as well as the chance to pick up a host of picnic goodies from the stallholders at Prahran Market.

The event is free and open to the public, rain or shine.

Those unable to make the main Picnic for the Planet can sign up to host their own picnic with family and friends. Anyone who holds a Picnic for the Planet with at least 25 people can download materials that will allow their picnic to be officially included in the Guinness World Record™-breaking attempt.
