Nestled on a south-facing hillside farm in Tinmouth, Vt., check out July's Solarfest
. What is Solarfest? It is impossible to describe in a paragraph or even a blog post. In one word: wellness. If I had to put it in a nutshell I would say Solarfest is the Northeast's premier renewable energy and arts festival — a three-day, family-friendly festival that combines world-class entertainment with not-to-be-missed workshops in renewable energy, sustainability and community engagement. A small slice of what I found last year includes artists, performers, vendors,activists, yoga, incredible local food (my personal favorites were the solar-powered slushies and American Flatbread pizza) and tent sites for all who want space, and "drumming" into the wee hours of the morning! What will you find at Solarfest? These short videos sum it up. Enjoy!
