The Internet is great. We can share tips and tricks, and trade secrets without even leaving our homes. But there’s no replacement for good, old-fashioned camaraderie, and nobody knows that better than Mother Earth News .
If you’re a homesteader, small-farmer, or gardener, you need to check out the Mother Earth News Fair  near you. From speakers and workshops to vendors and livestock breeders, the Mother Earth News Fairs draw thousands of sustainability-minded, curious, self-reliant folks.
And of course, a full slate of Chelsea Green authors will be among their ranks!
Join us at the first Mother Earth News Fair of the season in Puyallup, WA  on June 1 & 2. Communications Director Shay Totten will be there to answer questions, and the following authors will be leading workshops and giving keynote speeches:
