Mother Earth News Fair Highlights, Part I

| 5/8/2018 5:10:00 PM

I’ve just returned from another educational and entertaining Mother Earth News Fair event, this time near the hip city of Asheville, NC. Fair attendees have lots of options with well over a hundred workshops to choose from. But there’s more to the fair than classes. In today’s post, I want to focus on some of the other learning opportunities and just plain fun things that were available to fair goers.

Indoors or outside, attendees had plenty vendors to check out—more than two hundred of them. Everything from vegetable and flower seeds to tractors was on site and available for sale. Mushroom kits, gardening tools, clothing, children’s books, sun ovens, and fruit trees were just a few more things available for purchase at the Asheville fair. As usual, I found a few things for the garden and some one-of-a-kind holiday gifts.
