SolFest  |  August 18, 2008

SolFest is the annual two-day celebration of solar technologies, renewable energy and sustainable living put on by the Solar Living Institute in Hopland, CA,; about 2.5 hours north of San Francisco. Heifer International was kind enough to share their coveted booth with us (thanks Heifer!) providing us with a prime location for promoting Solar Cookers International with a like-minded crowd. We had a steady stream of visitors throughout the day, and this kind of exposure at such a venue is unparalleled. It was hot as hell, but worth the trip ~ we made some yummy solar cooked treats and were one of the most popular booths present, hardly giving us a free moment!

The Solar Living Institute has an active solar goods retail store on it's grounds called Real Goods ~ they already sells the Sun Oven, the SOS Sport and the Hot Pot. While we were there I spoke with Tina Meyers, Retail Buyer for Real Goods, and they will be carrying the CooKit and other items from SCI's store soon as a result.

Zero waste is the name of the game @ SolFest.

Even the babies @ SolFest are hippies.
