Event brings “wiser living” philosophy to life once again
Clear a spot on your calendar! The Mother Earth News Fair is returning to Asheville, North Carolina this spring!
Mother Earth News, the nation’s largest and longest-running publication about self-sufficient lifestyles, is holding its Mother Earth News Fair April 9-10 at the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center in Fletcher for the sixth time. The Fair runs from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
“The Asheville community has been so welcoming to us time and time again. We can’t wait to return with new, practical workshops as well as crowd favorites,” says Andrew Perkins, the Fair’s director.
Attendees can attend more than 150 hands-on workshops that cover organic gardening, food preparation and preservation, natural health, renewable energy, homesteading, small-scale livestock, green building and remodeling, green transportation, and related topics. Local and national experts on sustainable and rural lifestyles will lead the sessions.
In addition, the Fair will host children’s activities, vendor and livestock demonstrations, an alternative energy vehicle display, hundreds of exhibitors, and local and organic food options.
For a reduced price, attendees will be able to pre-order a weekend wristband closer to the event. Wristbands at the gate will cost more. Children 17 and under get in free. A limited number of VIP lanyards are available for purchase as well. VIPs receive perks such as priority seating at workshops and catered meals.
