Much like the rest of the world right now, we are feeling the effects of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19. One of the most rewarding aspects of what the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR does is educate folks on the virtues of self-reliance. Those skills are certainly relevant and self-empowering in times like these.

We had already begun working on a plan for online workshops like those presented at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIRS so those who do not live close or cannot travel to our FAIR locations can “get in on the action.” When we realized the need to cancel the Tennessee FAIR on March 23, we started working aggressively on the framework for online learning.

This condensed series features seven pre-recorded workshop videos from some of our most highly attended FAIR workshops. Topics range from elderberry to raising chickens, from fermenting kraut to getting started off grid.

There were more than 6,000 participants in the free week (April 18-26) of our first online mini-course! You can still in enroll in the mini-course for just $7. That’s only $1 per workshop video!

We are also working on a new online event for June that we’ll be releasing more information about in the near future. In the meantime, see what folks had to say about the mini-course:

“Loved this! My partner and I have been toying with container gardens on our ground-floor patio, but I wasn’t quite sure where to start. There’s just so much information! I have a pretty good idea now.” – Felicity F.

“Thank you for sharing your expertise. The first step (to living off grid) is to realize that finding the right piece of land is not ‘magic’. I think most of us newbies tend to over-romanticize the process. It was nice to get a good dose of reality along with some good encouragement.” – Richard M.

“(I) have used elderberry for over 30 years for colds and such. You have inspired me to want to plant some elder around our property! I didn’t know it had so many different uses! Thank you! – Nancy B.
