I’ll Be Speaking at the Mother Earth News Fair Next Weekend!

Mother Earth News Fair at Seven Springs Resort, Pennsylvania

Who’s going to the Mother Earth News Fair at Seven Springs Resort in Pennsylvania next weekend? Exciting days ahead — not only will it be my first time attending, it will also be my first time speaking at the fair!

I’ll be taking to the UTNE Stage inside the convention center on Friday, September 18, 2015, at 4 pm to present on the topic “From Leaves and Flowers to Stems and Seeds: Exploring All the Delicious Possibilities of Your Vegetables.” Afterward at 5 pm, I’ll be signing copies of The CSA Cookbook at the official fair bookstore.

If you aren’t able to make it to the fair on Friday, you can still look for me all weekend at Quarto Publishing, Booth 2706 inside the exhibit hall, where I’ll be on hand for questions, comments, hugs, and laughs. Quarto will be selling my book (and I’ll be signing it!), so you can pick one up at the fair if you haven’t already. Perhaps some early Christmas presents?!

Since I’ve never been to one of their fairs, the whole experience will be a new one for me and I’m looking forward to learning lots about the self-sufficient lifestyle. Before you go, here are a few things to make your weekend at the Mother Earth News Fair a great one:

  • Skip the lines and order your wristband passes online in advance
  • Download a map of the fairgrounds (I’ll be spending most of the weekend inside the convention center at Booth 2706 with Quarto Publishing)
  • Check out the final schedule of all the speakers and workshops (by the way, my sweet friends Lisa Steele from Fresh Eggs Daily and Melissa Caughey from Tilly’s Nest will also be speaking and signing their respective books at the fair!)

I cannot wait to meet you all next weekend in Seven Springs!
