A little note from Bill Fleming:

The Charrette for the Festival was held at The Salvage Station in Asheville on September 30th. The event was a great success-many thanks to Sharon Bowlin, Stephanie Ned Doyle Crawford and all who came out in support of renewable, sustainable food and energy. With over a dozen vendors, many organizations and at 3 Solar Power Companies represented, there were many productive ‘meet ups’ resulting in a strong list of volunteers for the gathering next year and we have ‘acquired’ several new staffers- Harmony Brooke ( marketing and revenue); Sean Puckett (volunteer liaison) and Libre and Pam Broussard (accommodations and hospitality co-ordinators).

The music was stellar with Bayou Diesel, Natti Lovejoys and Pleasure Chest keeping folks moving on the dance floor. Interspersed with Impassioned delivery by a number of energy activists from the area as well as ‘a word from our sponsors and partners’- Nuclear Watch South, Warren Wilson College, Sundance Solar, Verner Early Education Center, Pisgah Brewery and Carrboro Solar Works

This preview event and the response we received bodes well for a powerful and well-attended festival next year. Let’s keep the energy flowing!
