I met Brent Miller, an indigenous man who made a really cool bark canoe out of swamp mahogany.

Apparently you have to wait for the right season when the tree's are flowering to harvest the bark. He told me that when you fold the bark over the edge of the canoe - you seal the edges with tree sap.

It took Brent 2 days to make this little canoe and he explained that mahogany bark has high level of being seaworthy as it doesn't warp when wet/dry.

This was definately worth while making time to visit this festival. Relaxing, informative, highly creative and live musical duo's to boot!

I loved this idea - hop on your bike and ride to make your blender go. Wouldn't this be a great idea - if only we all had to ride a bike to get our TV's going - how fit would we all be.

There's still plenty of time to check out this festival - it ends on the 9th June 2013. Take a picnic or something to nibble on as although there was a tent set up selling coffee, the nearest eaterie is the Apolonian Pub, which is just down the road and well worth a visit!
