Wonderful event! Excellent speakers and the booths had great organic and sustainable items, and books and resources. It is exciting to see how many like-minded people exist.
Is it weird that I now daydream about goat cheese? Mother Earth News Fair, you've ruined me. Thanks for an amazing weekend!
-Mikenna Pierotti Townsend
The fair was so amazing that to me, it was as if Mother Earth's magazine's pages had popped out and come to life! Thank you for a memorable, wonderful experience!
It was refreshing and encouraging to be among others with the same views, concerns and goals. I heard from one of the cooks that a local paper had estimated that 10,000 people were in attendance on Saturday. It's rare to attend an event with so many visitors and not see garbage thrown all over the grounds. A little effort goes a long way. My husband and I had a great time and left inspired and with many new ideas.
We left full of new knowledge on several topics, armloads of goodies, aching bodies, and the satisfaction of a fulfilling day with new friends. We hope to go back next year and take the whole family.
If you have never been to a Mother Earth News Fair, and have the desire to learn new skills, crafts, or how to be just a little more self-sufficient, I can not stress enough nor encourage you enough to make plans to go to one next year. You will not be disappointed.
The Fair, I think, had something for everyone. I attended sessions as diverse as one on building an electric motorcycle to one on urban gardening to one on using permaculture on a farm. There were sessions on everything from alternative energy to alternative medicine to alternative building.
What I took away from the Fair more than anything, though, was the realization that we’re not alone in what we’re trying to do and that there are an amazing amount of resources out there, sometimes for free, for anyone interested in trying.
