2014 Mother Earth News Fair

We just got back from the 2014 Mother Earth News Fair held at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, PA.  Had a fantastic time learning and sharing with a bunch of (mostly) like-minded people.  We got a lot of great content, but it will take us a few days to get it into a form we can share.  In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures of the girls learning how to milk a goat. #MotherEarthNewsFair Check back later this/next week for some of the things we saw / learned / experienced!
