Event Watch: The Mother Earth News Fair
Mark your calendars for the weekend of May 6th and 7th, because the Mother Earth News Fair is returning to Asheville! This is a hugely popular event in the area - mainly because it so closely aligns with our community's culture and value system. This event focuses on living simply and sustainably, and the information available to attendees is priceless! Read on for more information about this fantastic event!
 
Where, When, What
The Mother Earth News Fair is held every year in Fletcher, at the WNC Agricultural Center (adjacent to the Asheville Airport!). From 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday, May 6th and Sunday, May 7th, attendees will have the opportunity to experience over 200 family-friendly, hands-on demos and workshops. With a plethora of topics - sustainable building practices, natural health, gardening, livestock, and renewable energy, to name a few - this event truly has something for everyone. Local and National experts and exhibitors will lead the information sessions, making this a really impressive community event.
