Report from the Local Food, Fiber & Energy Fair




On November 17, we participated in the 3rd annual Local Food, Fiber & Energy Fair at Mann Library on the Cornell University Campus. We had a table for Empowered in the energy section of the fair alongside some of the folks featured in the film – Ithaca Biodiesel, Enfield Energy, Renovus Energy and Sustainable Tompkins.

We played the rough cut of the film on a loop while handing out free buttons and letting people know about the upcoming screening at Cinemapolis on Dec 7.

The fair had great energy and a lot of student foot traffic, thanks to the great location. Fair organizer, Jeff Piestrak, said the event was getting so big that they will need to expand to a larger space next year – woohoo!
