Going West to The National Heirloom Expo

I’m taking my “Edible Spaces in Small Places” presentation to The National Heirloom Exposition in beautiful Sonoma County, Calif.

The National Heirloom Exposition is shaping up to be the World’s Fair of the heirloom and local food movements.

I’m delighted to be one of 70 speakers at the world’s largest heritage food event.

I’ll be sharing my experience growing small-space vegetable gardens and giving tips for how to grow a beautiful and productive container garden like the one in my backyard.

The Heirloom Expo is a celebration of heirloom gardening and farming done the old-fashioned way. There will be heirloom vegetables, traditional foods, rare plants and poultry, music, movies, food tastings, demonstrations, an heirloom seed exchange, and a trade show with more than 200 vendors.

I’m excited to be part of an event that includes a diverse group of keynote speakers, including Jeffrey Smith, an expert on genetically modified foods and their impacts, Alice Waters, well-known chef and author, and Dr. Vandana Shiva, a leading proponent of the pure food movement.

Farming experts, photographers, plant breeders, horticulturists, urban farmers, bee keepers, pumpkin experts, herbalists, and garden authors like me will present a wide-range of programs and workshops during the three-day event.

All event profits will be donated to various school gardens and real food education.

More information is available at The National Heirloom Exposition website.
