Bob Swaim the Bicycle Man [MORE INFO]
Don’t miss Bob Swaim the bicycle man. Take a ride with Bob through the history of bicycles and see dozens of bicycles from the past, present and future. Explore the relation of human powered vehicles to health, history, engineering, environment, diversity and team building. He will amaze you with juggling and magic tricks. Join Bob on the seven person bicycle and take a ride around the festival grounds.
Bob has nearly 200 bikes in his collection which includes several tandems, as well as three, four, and five-passenger bikes, and a 400-pound seven-passenger tricycle known as the “Conference Bike” that was recently featured on the local PBS series Tempo.
This year Bob has some new additions which include a woodbike and a lovebike. The woodbike is made from a combination of woods where the trees were conserved by a custom
furniture maker in California. Yes, it can be rode like a real bicycle. The wood seat is more
comfortable than a regular bicycle seat. He will also have the famous Quintette, which there are only 10 in the world. Human powered vehicles save energy and make us healthy too!

Got sun? We all do! And that is the great thing about solar cooking-we can all do it. See different examples of solar cookers at work. Learn about the benefits to ourselves and our planet by cooking with the sun. In many countries, wood is needed to burn to be able to cook food. This not only de-pletes their trees, it also leaves them exposed to smoke while cooking with fire. For millions of people who lack access to safe drinking water and become sick or die each year from preventable waterborne illnesses, solar water pasteurization is a life-saving skill.
Using a solar oven can be a creative, relaxing, edu-cational and just a fun way to eat! It takes slow cooking to a new level. Cook full meals while playing on the beach, while reading a book, camping even at work.
We hope you will stop by and see what’s cookin’!
2 cookers will be raffled. See the MAREA booth

The plastic gyre, or big swirling-tornado like thing, in the Pacific Ocean is just one of many plastic landfills in our oceans. Plastics not only effect the marine environment of the oceans but also our local waterways that are used for our drinking water.
Water bottles make up the majority of this waste, not to mention that the water bottle companies are tapping into our water sources.
See the bag monster in person helping us to remember to use reusable bags and/or not even taking a bag. Where do all of those plastic bags in boxes at the grocery store go to? Find this out.
Learn about the history of plastic in our consumer world.
Also on display, art made with single use plastic.

Crochet plastic grocery bags into stylish carrying/handbags with Renee
Stop by Fri/Sun 11am & 1pm, Sat 11am, 1 pm & 3pm plastic bags provided.
Just bring your imagination.
