Locke Street was buzzing with activity during September 8th's festival. Environment Hamilton was there promoting our Eat Local project as well as the Climate Challenge - check out their blog! (http://hamiltonclimatechallenge.blogspot.com/)
The festival gave me a chance to check out this part of the city. The weather was perfect and the response from people was fantastic. We handed out 25 energy efficiency kits within the first two hours. Our "If you Ate Today, Thank a Farmer" heading on the display garnered quite a few reactions. I had a couple people thank me personally as well as one man tip his hat and say, "You're welcome dear." The local food issue seems to be really resonating with people.
