Mother Earth News, Natural Home‘s sister publication, is hosting its first-ever sustainable-living fair aimed at getting people more directly involved with the well-being of Mother Earth.

TheMother Earth News Fair will be held from Sept. 25-26 at the Seven Springs Mountain Resort outside Pittsburgh. Experts from Mother Earth News and its sister publications, Natural HomeGritThe Herb Companion and Utne Reader, will lead session on sustainable living. Sessions will include information about organic gardening, renewable energy, small-scale agriculture, natural health, do-it-yourself projects and more.

In addition to the expert-led sessions, fair-goers will be invited to participate in fun-filled, family activities, ranging from listening to musical entertainment to strolling around a green shopping pavilion. Seven Springs Mountain Resort was chosen to host the fair because of its commitment to environmental protection and recycling practices.

Attendees can participate in resort activities from fishing to horseback riding, and will get a discounted lodging rate. Camping is also available.
