Mother Earth News Fair Comes Back to Belton February 2017


The Mother Earth News Fair is coming to Central Texas, so mark your calendars for February 18-19, guys! ! The fair will hold over 150 workshops, with many informative demonstrations and lectures & dozens of regional and national vendors that feature sustainable lifestyle products and services, including: books, tools, seeds, tractors, organic foods, clothes, solar gadgets and more!

Being an avid reader of  Mother Earth News magazine,and aspiring herbalist and aromatherapist, and a DIY’er in general you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be there to catch presentations as well as many other well known keynote speakers! Also note that there are plenty of fun events for the kids to enjoy as well! Be prepared to bring an extra pair of clothes (or not) because last year they had an area for kids to make sculptures (and play) in mud with sticks, as well as other hands-on activities. There were a LOT of happy kiddos, and parents in general. I enjoyed listening in on Purina’s release of their new organic chicken feed, as well as many speakers including Rosemary Gladstar and Joel Salatin. The Mother Earth News fair is a family friendly event that allows us to gather as a community and gain knowledge and tips on  Modern Homesteading, Animal Husbandry, Organic Gardening, Green Building, Natural Health, Renewable Energy, Real Food and more! It was truly a special treat for us to attend and I hope we can make a tradition out of having them visit us each year here in Texas!
