As mentioned in the previous post – Gunpowder park in Enfield has been hosting The Energy Cafe for a wee while. We went up to take part in a wonderful workshop on generating electricity using pedal power run by Magnificent Revolution, who have been providing electricity for music and cinema events around the country.

I was planning on writing up all that I learnt but luckily the girls are one step ahead of me and have comprehensive instructions on their own blog here – http://www.magnificentrevolution.org/diy-2/

I am not sure that this is going to be useful in the garden at the moment but you never know when it may come in handy, hey? Did someone say living in a yurt one day? Hmmmmm….
