ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL 2011
JUNE 2011

The rains came but only after we had a taste of summer and a fantastic weekend. 2011 was always going to a great year for us as our bee campaing, Let it Bee, was continuing to be so successful with more than 100 species of bees and wasps being found on The Field of Hope, some extremely rare to the UK.

 

Other great things were the Garden Stage being partly powered by solar - it was great to see so many solar panels lined up - a real visual aid to the environmental message going out to the audience, thanks to Firefly Solar.

 

The sight of so many people cycling to charge their mobile phones was amazing. The Kinetic bikes were in use all weekend - Power to the People!

 

The vibe of the Hive was amazing. Our eco showcase field became a real destination this yeare with the Kashmir cafe serving local food and ale and welcoming some local bands on their small acoustic stage. People found out about our bee campaign from our environmental partners Gift to Nature; and UNICEF joined us to promote their Get Children Climate Ready campaign.

GARDENS OF ENGLAND
NOVEMBER 2010

Just before the floods hit Cornwall at the end of last year Juliet found herself at the ever-amazing Eden Project taking part in a Question Time style debate entitled The Garden’s of England. The discussion explored the effects of dividing natural environments for temporary celebrations and whether the pros of uniting cultural communities and raising the profile of local economies really outweigh the cons of environmental and social impact in rural settings. Bill Mitchell, Art Director of Wildworks, sculptor Peter Randall-Page, and Maggie Bolt from Maggie Bolt Associates joined her on the panel, which was chaired by writer and broadcaster Tim Marlow. This was the third and final debate of the Sky Arts Artichoke Salon Series.
