Press Coverage

By:Matthew Petty

Some businesses and groups presented general sustainability information. The local community access channel recorded video pledges of people with green fingers, and a local producer started filming a documentary of our region's transition at our rally.

There was a solar powered van with a flat-panel for presentations that we ran the PA off of. We did the event during the morning at the Farmer's Market, and at 11am I turned on the microphone and introduced the 1 Sky priorities to a crowd of around 150.

Rebekah Kennedy, a Green Party candidate for the U.S. Senate, and Walt Eilers, running for Fayetteville mayor, gave some words. Then Bill Ball, chairman of the Arkansas Renewable Energy Association, talked about the potential of solar power. At the end, I said some fire-em-up things, and we closed out.

All in all, a great day. Video coming soon.
