Heirloom Expo – As August rolls to a close, we look ahead to September for fall garden planning, seed starting, and the Heirloom Expo. The 4th annual Heirloom Expo takes place September 9-11 in Santa Rosa, CA. If you’ve never been, you should make a plan to go. It’s billed as “The World’s Pure Food Fair” and consists of 3 days of speakers from all over the world covering subjects from seed-saving to feeding the planet, from rare seed preservation to healthy living. Imagine a warehouse filled with display table after table of exotic looking squash and melons, all labeled—some even available for tasting. There’s a giant pumpkin contest, a Biodynamic Lounge with classes from experts in the field of biodynamics and permaculture, and so much more. Seed and garden supply vendors show up from all over the country to participate, and the food is delicious. For more information and tickets, visit theheirloomexpo.com. Christy will be giving a talk on biointensive gardening in urban settings on Thursday at 12:15. Copies of Gardening for Geeks will be available.
