Where better to set up our stall and enthuse festival-goers about Ecology than in Einstein's Garden at The Green Man Festival in Glanusk, Wales? Einstein's Garden is a fusion of science, art and nature and "is the perfect place to cultivate your curiosity and indulge your creative passions". We'll be engaging with people who want to find out more about the world we live in and linking to other activities in the garden by people who want to communicate science creatively.
The Green Man also has an exciting line-up, including Band of Horses and the inimitable Roy Harper. Maybe that's why we've had a flurry of really great competition entries over the weekend...
If you're still thinking about entering and wondering how to engage people in your research, you could try this advice from Nature Jobs on 'elevator speeches' - how to explain what you do in 2 minutes (and in simple terms).
To start the week, we'll be listening to The Green Man by Roy Harper.
