The optimum temperature for the microbes used in biogas generation is between 29-35'C; the temperature the day Poo Power!
had its first public event in Melbourne at Edinburgh Gardens was 38'C. It was evident that the heat scared away a few people as it was the first hot day of the season, but we still put on a good show. We gave out compostable dog poo bags provided generously by Because We Care
, fridge magnets and homemade dog cookies (with its recipe). It was great fun talking to the local residents, the local Mayor (Jackie Fristacky) and Yarra Councillors, Melbourne Water, Pet Homestay... one guy even came all the way from Ballarat to check us out!
Diesel was there too, hiding in the shade but he also had some competition in the form of a mascot (made by The Costume Factory
). It’s was hilarious. He would have stayed longer if the weather was kinder to us. Photos of the event have been published on Facebook
