Solar Double Cropping (what's that?), Cheesemaking + more!
| Dear Abundant People,|
One more event for this year! We love to celebrate all the great things happening out there. And there is a lot to celebrate....like the local rice that was just harvested @ Edible Earthscapes or the folks that are taking their money out of Wall Street and investing right here in food projects with Slow Money NC and one of our biodiesel guys is going to Ghana, West Africa to turn human poop into biodiesel....now, that is sexy!
Solar Double Cropping Ribbon Cutting-Friday!
|Piedmont Biofuels Solar Time Lapse|
4pm this Friday, we'll cut the ribbon and flip the switch!
This project is in response to solar installations being banned in some areas where they are taking prime farmland. We can have our cake and eat it too! Experimentation will take place to see which crops actually benefit from having some shade and rain protection over them.
It's the first of it's kind I think in the world, possibly the universe!!! So, come on down and celebrate with us!
