Much like the rest of the world right now, we are feeling the significant impact of the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 on our daily lives. One of the most rewarding parts of building the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR is bringing together the nation’s leading authorities to educate folks on the virtues of self-reliance. Those skills are certainly relevant and self-empowering in times like these.

We invite you to explore our new online learning environment where you will find video courses and pre-recorded webinars from some of our most popular workshop leaders at the FAIRs.
