BRINGING THE MAGAZINE TO LIFE!
The MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIRS are fun-filled, family-oriented sustainable lifestyle events that feature dozens of practical, hands-on demonstrations and workshops from the leading authorities on: Renewable Energy, Small-Scale Agriculture, Gardening, Green Building, Green Transportation and Natural Health.
In between sessions, attendees enjoy an array of entertainment options, organic local food and beverages, as well as outdoor gardening and livestock demonstrations. Plus, they save on great deals from dozens of regional and national vendors that feature sustainable lifestyle products and services, including: books, tools, seeds, crafts, organic foods, clothes, solar gadgets and more!
Programming at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR isn't just for adults. A full slate of exciting, informative workshops is dedicated for children ages 17 and under, who are admitted free to the event. Whether it is learning the fundamentals of gardening or beekeeping, or learning how to make (and taste!) homemade ice cream, the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR "Tree House" is chock-full of engaging, eco-friendly activities for children of all ages.
This is such a fun event — with great speakers, super-hands-on workshops, food booths, activities inside and outside (on hay bales), plus sheep, alpacas, and chickens.
This family-oriented sustainable lifestyle fair features practical, hands-on demonstrations of things like herbal medicine making, lotion making, yogurt making and more!
Speakers include actor and electric vehicle activist Ed Begley, Jr, "environmentalist-capitalist-lunatic farmer" Joel Salatin, "queen of organic growers" Barbara Damrosch, heirloom seed pioneer Gary Nabhan and organic gardener and entomologist Linda Gilkeson.
