 Get to know Lyle Estill of Piedmont Biofuels and Mark Kastel of the Cornucopia Institute. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

I'll be presenting Industrial Evolution: Local Solutions for a Low-Carbon Future at 4:00 on June 4th on the Mitsubishi stage.

Lyle EstillWhat are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees? 

I went from deep frying turkeys in my back yard, and turning the used cooking oil into biodiesel, to becoming one of America's largest biodiesel cooperatives--operating a million gallon plant. I'm also a local economy guy who helped create high speed wireless Internet in our small southern town when the big companies could not be bothered. And I tell stories about our town, and how we have managed to figure out how to feed ourselves, fuel ourselves, and finance ourselves in the name of a resilient economy.
