We’re delighted to announce that this September we’ll host the first-ever MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR, a hands-on, sustainable-living festival. We hope you’ll join us! You’ll enjoy two full days of workshops, DIY demonstrations and keynote addresses from some of the nation’s leading experts on wiser living, including the MOTHER EARTH NEWS editorial team and editors from our sister magazines: Grit, Natural Home, Farm Collector, Utne Reader and The Herb Companion.
This fun-filled, family-oriented event will feature something for everyone, from beginners to experts — and even kids — on the topics of organic gardening, small-scale agriculture, real food, renewable energy, green building, green transportation and natural health. Exhibits and demonstrations with heritage livestock and equipment are also planned, and attendees will enjoy an eco-friendly marketplace and local, organic food and beverages.
And who’s more knowledgeable about wise, practical and self-sufficient living than many of you, our loyal MOTHER EARTH NEWS readers? If you would be interested in presenting a workshop or demonstration at the Fair, or reserving a booth in the marketplace, please visit the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR page for information.
The event kicks off Friday, Sept. 24, with a fundraising dinner for one of our favorite nonprofit organizations, followed by two full days of speakers, workshops and entertainment (Sept. 25 and 26) at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, nestled in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania (about an hour southeast of Pittsburgh). The resort features horseback riding, sport clay shooting, trout fishing, mountain biking, golf and more, plus a large hotel, a conference center and numerous restaurants, bars and activity centers. Multiple accommodations are available, including hotel rooms, cottages and condominiums.
