MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR—one of the greatest shows on earth!

Just returned from the Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, PA and have to say it was the best organized, most informative and most entertaining event I’ve been to in a decade. I was there with the gang from Storey Publications http://storey.com/ 
There were over 200 workshops and demonstrations with topics like “What the Cluck? Getting Started with Chickens,” “Live Simply so That Others Can Simply Live” (Ed Begley Jr.—remember him?), “Aquaponic Gardening,” “Eating Fresh from Farm to Table,” and “5 Simple Projects and 25 Great Tips for the Backyard Homesteader” (by yours truly). The people were friendly, the vibe was inviting and it just felt good being there. There were people selling everything from portable lumber mills to solar panels to handcrafted beers. There’s another fair in Topeka in October and—rumor has it—one is coming to WIsconsin in 2015. Check it out.http://www.motherearthnews.com/fair/kansas.aspx#axzz3DVB9gwDV
