An excerpt from The Heirloom Expo event description:
The Heirloom Expo - “World’s Pure Food Fair!”, an event for pure food enthusiasts, the national press, home growers across the country, farmers, school groups and the general public. The Expo is now dubbed the “World’s Fair” of the heirloom industry! This is a “non-profit” event, and any funds above cost will be donated to school gardens and food programs.
Each day includes a host of speakers on topics ranging from organic farming methods to food justice and the most exciting new seeds varieties for the year. There is also a vendor hall/expo, an expanded kids area, local food vendors, and opportunities for networking with other like-minded folks in the industry.
