Fostering new ways for us all to connect is one of the things we enjoy most here at MOTHER EARTH NEWS. From our growing online community to face-to-face interactions at the FAIRS, we’re thrilled by the many ways we can share the joys of sustainable living. Be sure to take advantage of the following opportunities for networking with people who share your interests and aspirations.

Share photos. Our newest community connector is a page we’ve set up on the photo-sharing website Flickr, where you can display your best photos of your gardens, homesteads, livestock, home projects, kitchen creations, renewable energy setups, nature and more. We’ll feature our favorite pics on social media and on our website — and perhaps even in print!

The FAIRS. There’s just no substitute for in-person interaction. We’ve scheduled five FAIRS for 2015, in North Carolina, Oregon, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Kansas. To find more details, download program schedules as they become available, and sign up for the FAIR newsletter, head to the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR website.

Facebook. Our page delivers useful advice and lively commentary on a wide range of topics to 1.6 million fans. Plus, to help you share local news and network with your neighbors, we also maintain Facebook pages for each separate state and province.

Blog Squad. Our blogging network grows every week, and our bloggers frequently share their homestead adventures, recipes, DIY projects and more. Find new posts on our website every day, and reach out directly to bloggers by leaving comments on their posts. If you have skills or knowledge to share, you can apply to be a blogger for MOTHER EARTH NEWS. Learn more about joining our Blog Squad.

Editorial advisory group. We choose the magazine’s articles and cover photos with invaluable input from the thousands of you who have signed up to take our online surveys. This survey process tells us exactly which topics are preferred by the largest number of readers, instead of us guessing at what you want to read. Sign up for our advisory group.
