Green Fair - Havant Park

Went along to the green fair at Havant Park today. Despite the weather the turnout was quite good, with some interesting stalls that I haven't seen before. Amazingly Highbury College had a stall, the reason being that they have a lot of new courses starting that include subjects like installing photovoltaic, solar thermal, water harvesting systems, energy efficiency, smart metering and renewable energy awareness.

One of my favourite stalls was  Northney Ice Cream who are based on Hayling Island, they had some excellent ice creams. I ended up buying two, firstly Turkish Delight flavour which was nice a smooth, then later I tried the Rum and Raisin flavour. Both were really good, I kid not.

Another interesting product on show were the Eko-logs which are made from rice husk food waste. Samples were available at the fair, they seemed very dense and quite heavy, apparently they burn for a longer time than wood.

An interesting event and well worth doing again.
