Get to know Robin Mather of MOTHER EARTH NEWS. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

Robin MatherI’m going to talk about how the food sovereignty movement can get Big Ag and Big Government out of your kitchen. I’ll have information about how the tiny town of Sedgwick, Maine, has passed a law which forbids federal interference in local food sales, so local dairymen can sell raw milk to customers who want that, for example. I’ll describe how the law was drafted and why, how the new law is playing out, and have handouts on how the audience can get their communities to adopt similar laws and ordinances.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees? 

I am so looking forward to sharing the passion for sustainability with FAIR attendees. It will be the first time I’ve found myself in a sea of like-minded people, and that is so thrilling to me. I read the other day that it takes only 10 percent of a population believing in an idea before it reaches a tipping point and causes society as a whole to adopt the idea. I think we’re getting close to that with sustainability and other green thinking.
