Last year, over 50,000 people came to celebrate nature’s bounty with a 2-day fair featuring 90 local small-batch entrepeneurs who are building new economies and delivering healthier ways of producing food, eating, and living.
Participants and visitors loved it and demanded more. The 2017 edition will build on that success.
