FLOYD ENERGY FAIR COMING UP NEXT SATURDAY 

Two Floyd County non-profit organizations, SustainFloyd and Apple Ridge Farm, will excite both adults and children with fascinating exhibits and fun at the Floyd Energy Fair at Chantilly Farm on Saturday, July 15.

The first annual Energy Fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the barn at Chantilly Farm and the surrounding grounds. 

The event at Chantilly Farm will be held rain or shine. Admission will be $5.00 per family and $3.00 for individuals, tickets will be sold at the door. Parking is free.

The Floyd Energy Fair will feature the SustainFloyd VoltzWagon, a solarized wagon that produces electricity for community events. One especially interesting feature of the Energy Fair will be a guided bus tour of Apple Ridge Farm in Floyd County, showcasing its new EBase USA: Blue Ridge. This is an off-grid, solar and wind-powered classroom, housed in a fully remodeled 1917 railway boxcar donated by the National Railway Historical Society and renovated through a community volunteer program with international corporation AkzoNobel. There are only five such EBases (Educational Bases) in the world…one in Antarctica, three in India and one in the United States (at Apple Ridge Farm in Floyd County). A sixth EBase off-grid classroom is under construction in Mexico. Sir Robert Swan, a polar explorer and environmentalist, started the global EBase movement.

So plan on coming out to learn how families can save energy, save money and help preserve and protect our natural environment.
