Renewable Energy Companies, local and regional charities, community and voluntary groups, ethical/environmental traders and businesses and Transition BH Hub are once again teaming up for a free event, The Green Family Fair, Moors Valley Country Park on Fri 13th & Sat 14th April 2012.
The Green Family Fair is sponsored by Sustainable Wood Energy Ltd of Wimborne, which has recently installed a new biomass boiler system in the Park’s Visitor Centre. The boiler uses wood chip to provide heat and hot water and is expected to reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 92% as well as saving up to 25% on the Park’s current fuel bill.
Special viewing windows, interpretation boards will mean that visitors can see the boiler in operation and learn more about using renewable resources to heat commercial buildings.
In addition to these fantastic facilities at Moors Valley, at The Green Fair there will face painting, a wild food foray, a quiz trail to follow and fun arts and crafts workshops using recycled materials. Entry to the fair is FREE OF CHARGE although usual parking fees will apply.
The event website http://www.greencommunityfair.co.uk and event page on facebookhttp://tinyurl.com/GCF-moorsvalley will be frequently updated as more workshops, activities, speakers and performers are confirmed.
In keeping with the environmental theme, there will be a solar powered stage by Floating Lotus showcasing local musical and performance talent;
Healthy eating can be found at Beggars’ Banquet Music Cafe from Shaftsbury who will serve up a delicious range of locally-sourced vegetarian and vegan organic food.
The event is additionally supported by the Cooperative Membership (https://www.facebook.com/membershipsw) and they will be a long side local campaigns, charities and causes with information stalls.
