Pedal Power & Solar Cooking at Cortelyou Greenmarket on December 16!

 

Sustainable Flatbush brings a fun and delicious twist to being green at the Cortelyou Greenmarket on Sunday, December 16 from 11am to 2 pm, with a demonstration of our Bike Blender and Solar Oven! Everyone is welcome to join in the fun — using human-powered energy to pedal-puree fresh seasonal ingredients from market vendors for a delicious soup, which we’ll pair with fresh bread, baked using energy from the sun.

The Bike Blender offers a perfect way to encourage sustainability — get a little exercise while saving electricity, to make a warm healthy treat that’s just right for a winter day.

As the perfect compliment to our delicious soup, enjoy scrumptious sun-baked bread from our very own Solar Oven. This oven uses the sun as its only energy source and bakes just like a regular oven… except it’s powered by clean renewable energy — no fossil fuels.

Thanks to our sponsor ConEd for making the Bike Blender and Solar Oven Demo possible. And thanks to GrowNYC and their market manager/chef Samantha Blatteis for providing all the materials, utensils and ingredients for the days demonstrations.

See you at the Greenmarket!
