Wordless Wednesday – The 2nd Annual Heirloom Exposition

Yesterday I met my good friend Patty Craft (with Horticulture Magazine) at the National Heirloom Exposition in Sonoma, CA.  What exactly is the expo?

Their website says it best:

The National Heirloom Exposition is a not-for-profit event centered around the pure food movement, heirloom vegetables, and anti-GMO activism.

 

 

Patty and Jere Gettle, the founder of this event.  Jere also has also written an amazing book about heirlooms that I loved and reviewed here.

I’m curious, are there heirloom expos like this in your area?

    • Thanks Kelly! It’s pretty impressive and one that I was dying to see in person.

  • Ah heck, why does it always happen when I am away???

    This looks fabulous. My good friend Jim Long was there too. Did you meet him? Long Creek Herbs.

    Sending love,

    • Hi Sharon,

      You would loooove this event! I saw Jim from a distance, but that was it. I’ve never met him in person, so Patty tried to introduce me but he was just too busy with customers. Hopefully next time I’ll meet him! Hope you’re well, my friend. Miss you!!!

  • I went there last year, this year I am too busy unfortunately. What a great event though. I am happy that there are people out there who are passionate about maintaining the food crop biodiversity.

    • Hi Laura, Yes it was really great to see so many people who are passionate about heirloom preservation. I was pleasantly surprised at how many people attended this event!
