5th Annual National Heirloom Exposition - All this heat makes you want to get away, doesn't it? Maybe now is a great time to plan an escape to the 5th Annual National Heirloom Exposition. If you've never been, you have to go. It's like running away to the circus for gardenerds. This year, Dr. Vandana Shiva will be the keynote speaker, talking about her work promoting heritage seed and her new book Soil Not Oil. Other highlights include amazing organic food, drool-worthy seed vendors, and amazing displays of vegetables the likes of which you've never seen. There are giant pumpkin contests, seed swaps, a honey show, the rare breed livestock show, music, a fiddlers contest, and much, much more. Learn more in one place that you can possibly imagine at the Heirloom Expo. This year, Christy will be speaking again on Thursday, September 10th at 4:00 p.m. in the Showcase Cafe. Her lecture will be all about growing vegetables in the drought. There will be a book signing following the talk at the book store. Last year all copies sold out, so get there early! Hope to see you there.
