Eden Project Ale Festival 2009

I nearly forgot to tell you, The Great Eden Ale Festival 2009 is on now at the Eden Project in Cornwall (22nd August - 31st August)

Being back at the Eden Project last weekend (for the second time this year) I spent two days in this wonderful place and it was rather handy to have the Ale Festival going on at the same time.

Ecotricity v EDF

Have you seen those green union flags doing the rounds? On the 10th June this tweet came from @ecotricity on twitter:

The Green Britain flag you may have seen on the TV etc is not ours! EDF the French nuclear power company has stolen it!

The very next day I spotted one of the green union flags in the nearby town of Aldershot on a billboard in the High Street. This street advertising was part of a campaign which has been gathering momentum both online and on TV with what seems like a huge campaign.

The Eden Project

The first time I saw the Eden Project was probably in or just after the first year after it opened, 2001. Once a quarry, or more accurately, a china clay pit, this big hole in the ground has been radically transformed into the incredible place that is the Eden Project with its trademark biodomes.

Back then it was just being populated; the domes were there with their own environments but the "pit" was a sparsely-planted. Now it has grown to maturity and what a splendid place the Eden Project is.
