There was an added focus to the annual Scarecrows, Sausages and Shiraz Festival at Pfeiffer Wines on the weekend - it was all about being sustainable.
The extra S was the focus this year over the two day event with a sustainability market, gardening demonstrations and a pledge board added to the agenda.
The Corowa Tree of Life Community Garden was on board and volunteer Sally Hughes said the response was "incredible".
"It is just about showing the community how easy it is to be sustainable," she said.
"Our community garden is run by the community for the community and coming to the festival here at Pfeiffers was about showing everyone what we do.
"But also teaching people it is easy and cheap to be sustainable in your garden."
Winemaker Chris Pfeiffer said although numbers were down on previous years, the sustainability aspect was a "new addition".
