I’m going to the fair.

Not that one!

Next week, September 8, 9, 10, I’ll be in Santa Rosa, California at the National Heirloom Exposition, billed as “The World’s Pure Food Fair.” It will be held at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. Here’s what they have to say:

Education about heirloom growing, sustainability, market farming, and risks of genetically modified foods will be a prime focus of many of the speakers, exhibitors, and vendors. An impressive line-up of nationally and internationally recognized speakers will include Ronnie Cummins from the Organic Consumers Association, Jeremy Seifert of GMO OMG, and Dr. Vandana Shiva from India. More than 100 on-topic speakers will engage audiences on all things related to ‘pure-food’, ‘gardening’ and ‘farming’ throughout the entire three days.

The exhibit hall will be filled with displays of thousands of varieties of heirloom fruits and vegetables. Some of the most innovative minds will showcase items of interest to inspire others. Please bring yours!

I attended the expo last year and it was great! Not as big as you might expect, but there are a lot of cool people as speakers, workshop leaders, vendors, and other attendees. If you are anywhere near, you should definitely drop in for a few hours.

I’ll be there with my book series, Seed Savers. The first three books are available now, with the fourth book due out in November. Seed Savers takes place in a future where gardening is illegal and fresh produce is not available (or recognized). Three children are on a quest to find out more and bring back real food. You can read more about the books here.

Please come by my table if you go!
