North Quabbin Energy had an information table at the Garlic and Arts Festival again this year. People enjoyed spinning the wheel to test their energy sense and discuss lawns, food and energy use with NQE members.
Once again many people attended the talks at the Renewable Energy and Local Living Tent organized by Steve and Janice Kurkoski. Another highlight was the brief presentation made about the large solar installations contructed on untillable farm land in Orange and Athol (the Hunt Farm in Orange and the Adams Farm in Athol. Hal Gillam and Kristen Marquis told the story of meeting at the Garlic and Arts Festival five years ago and beginning a conversation about solar development for the No. Quabbin region. This conversation turned into a reality in the fall of 2013.
