A passionate Koroit resident is helping drive the town's newest festival.
Cassie Carroll is the volunteer co-ordinator for the Replenish Our Living Planet Festival.
The festival's inaugural staging will take place on November 16 in the Koroit Botanical Gardens.
Ms Carroll, a mother-of-two, moved to Koroit five years ago and quickly fell in love with the town.
"Koroit's an exciting spot, up and coming with a lot of young families," she said.
"These events only happen if everyone gets together.
"I think Koroit is one of the best communities for making things happen.
"It's a gem to find this size community that has a thriving small-town feel but also has a cosmopolitan feel, it's a really good balance."
Ms Carroll has been an active volunteer with the town's kindergarten and was ready for another community challenge.
She saw the Replenish Our Living Planet Festival in the newspaper earlier this year and decided to become involved.
"I went to a meeting and was really impressed with how passionate everyone was," she said.
"The energy in the group is fantastic, how much they want to make this happen is inspiring.
"Organisers take every obstacle in their stride, they are so determined to make it work, it is huge to do the first one, a massive undertaking."
Ms Carroll believes the strong sense of community in Koroit makes the town the perfect location for the festival.
She is calling for anyone interested in volunteering at the festival to make contact.
"The more hands on deck, the more chance we have of making the festival a success," Ms Carroll said.
"We have a good band of volunteers in place already but we would love some more.
"There will be plenty of things to do setting up on the Friday and then on the day of the festival itself."
With climate change a hot topic, Ms Carroll said the festival was keen to focus on positive change and not get involved in any politics.
"The festival is about helping people find out how they can have a positive impact," she said.
"The focus is let's try and look after this planet.
"It's just small changes, habits we need to look at, everything has been so convenient and we have slipped into some bad habits.
"Things like using take away coffee cups.
"We can take habits out of our lives just as quickly as we brought them in."
