Big Solar comes to the Sydney Royal Easter Show

The massive efforts of our volunteers and members made BZE’s two week long stall at the Sydney Royal Easter Show a huge success.An estimated 2 500 people passed through the stall to see our model solar thermal plant and learn about improving household sustainability through practices like worm farming and composting.

Very few people approached us with negativity. The majority were very much in favour of the BZE plan and those that had no previous opinion or experience went away well informed – as did the new recruits who were helping out BZE for the first time.

Gavin, the main driver of this mammoth event, scored a talk on Big Solar on stage in the Horticultural Pavillion. In past years he’s been restricted to talking about compost, worms and bees – seems like public awareness is gradually increasing, and will continue in this direction as we continue to fight.

Thanks so much to the 26 volunteers gave up their time to man the stall, and thanks to the organisers for the hours of work they put in to make it happen!
