Mother Earth News Fair
A few people rolled their eyes when I was recounting some of the things I'd seen there (wacky survivalists, composting toilets, dread-locked hair to the floor) and asked why I'd gone. Yes, there were some crazy people there, but sitting through rounds of talks on healing plants, the history of the apple (more gripping than you might imagine), rebuilding food economies, practical permaculture techniques (I finally understand what permaculture is), and the value of fermented foods was incredibly inspiring.
Plus, where else am I going to get a badge that says WHO IS YOUR FARMER? to wear on my purse, or PESTICIDES SUCK! stickers to post all over my front door?
Why, at the Mother Earth News Fair, of course. Of course.
