Abstract

More research needs to evaluate links between community psychology and event impacts. Events are not just entertainment focused economic drivers, but gatherings contributing to society, community and local cultural identity. There is also a need to address ‘green’ philosophies, while visible and widespread, are not just environmentally focused, but also local community focused—concerning elements of social sustainability, belonging and sense of community. This makes the discussion of ‘green events’ relevant to community psychology and local well-being researchers. The aim of this study is to find other possibilities how green events could contribute to local community well-being by investigating how farmers markets unite people to understand how such events reinforce and shape sense of community. This paper is based on participant observations and semi-structured interviews to explore the conceptual notion of sense of community. Three emerged themes are presented: local participation; social atmosphere; and sense of belonging.
