PRC at Mother Earth News Fair

Posted by: Mary Kate Ranii on September 27, 2016

PRC joined thousands at the Mother Earth News Fair (MENF) at the Seven Springs Ski Resort in Champion, PA from Septemer 23rd to 25th, 2016. The 3-day event featured speakers, workshops, and exhibitors from all over the country (and world).   The MENF brings together proponents of sustainability in all of its many forms. Everything from alternative energy to animal husbandry to homesteading skills (beekeeping, fermentation, family farms, craft distilling) to cob and straw building – to name just a few. 11 stages offered an on-going and wide selection of educational opportunities and speakers. Well-known speakers included Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm and Eliot Coleman, best known as the Four Season Gardener from Maine.

menfPRC offered two workshops addressing backyard composting and watershed awareness/rain barrels. Over 200 attendees were at each of PRC’s adult workshops learning the ins and outs of composting, rain water harvesting and watershed protection! PRC was also excited to offer a children’s Watershed Awareness program.
