It’s harvest time and the 2020 grow season, with many staying home and practicing social distancing, has been a landmark one for home gardeners and livestock farmers. Now what do you do with your garden bounty homegrown meat? The new Food Preservation Course features some of our most popular Fair speakers discussing tips and tricks for freezing, canning, curing meat, dehydrating, jam-making, fermentation, and more!

  • Simple Jam-Making with Linda Ziedrich
  • Store Vegetables All Fall and Winter Without a Root Cellar with Melissa K. Norris

Since 2010, our team has been producing the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR at a variety of locations across the country. Toward the end of 2019, we began laying the groundwork for a virtual version of the FAIR where folks could participate, learn, and be inspired no matter where they live or when they can attend. We planned to launch this online-exclusive event later in 2020, after we wrapped up the year with our physical FAIRS. Then, well, you know what happened next.

We pivoted, launched our first “Mini-Course” in April as a test, and were thrilled when more than 6,000 joined. Now, we are excited to take this one-of-a-kind event to a new level with the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR ONLINE!


For this program, we’re using the Teachable platform. Here, we offer “courses,” and each course features pre-recorded video workshops hosted by the esteemed experts that make up the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR family, along with supporting materials and handouts. Each workshop video is 20 to 30 minutes long. We have also included all of our live webinar recordings on this platform.
