A few years ago we went to the Living Green Expo. The first 200 people or something was supposed to get a free Blue Sky Guide. So we got there 15 minutes early and found the line wrapped around the block. No guide for us. But we were just starting our journey to a more sustainable life and having the validation of so many like minded souls was a great thing. Earlier this year we heard that the Living Green Expo was not going to happen due to loss of funding. Then miraculously a new sponsor took it on.
This year we were actually exhibitors at it! I wasn’t really looking forward to a long couple of days but once again the validation is amazing. Especially when you are going out on a limb starting a new farm venture.
A frequent question was “where is crazy boy?” The children were not there the whole weekend (Proeun and I traded off) but when Two was the usual answer was “under the table.”
It was great walking around and seeing some of the other exhibitors. Here’s some of our favorites.
North House Folk School where lots of cool creating was going on. Too bad they aren’t closer to us!
Cushy Toosh a mom owned diaper company making diapers for babies and adults as well as a host of other cloth products. With baby number 4 coming it is time to add some more diapers to the stash so they were my choice to support.
Grazeland Farm (couldn’t find the link) selling all sorts of great wool products, I adore wool!
And we can’t forget our next door neighbor but their booth was always so packed that I was never able to get a picture of them. They are Thousand Hills Cattle Company. They were giving away free samples of hot dogs and salami–sooooo good–from their 100% grass fed beef. They were so good to us to, even giving the kids whole hot dogs while they stared hungrily at the samples. You would think we never fed them or something. With some of the proceeds from this weekend we plan to buy a bulk order from them. So soon it is back to normal life, but so so much fun!
