Advocates of living a green life, as well as making money doing it, are gathering this weekend at the Walworth County Fairgrounds, in Elkhorn Wisconsin. Organizers of EcoFair360 hope to lure attendees to workshops ranging from building an electric motorcycle to designing a green roof. A local businessman is “buzzing” out there to share his creation. WUWM environmental reporter Susan Bence visited Charlie Koenen at an old factory in Bay View to learn about his beekeeping creation as the co-founder of Beepods.
