Also at ecofest there is a talk every year. One year was about a guy who farms in peoples' back yards. He gives them some of the produce as rent for the land and he sells the rest. Last year was a talk from the town historian who renovated an old stick style house and how he made it more energy efficient. This year had a talk by the town manager. He talked about what had been done in the town over the last 5 years. We made our goal of reducing our energy use by 20% in five years. We are one of seven Massachusetts towns to succeed in this challenge. Go Arlington!
