Since 2010, our team has been producing the Mother Earth News Fair at a variety of locations across the country. Toward the end of 2019, we began laying the groundwork for a virtual version of the Fair where folks could participate, learn, and be inspired no matter where they live or when they can attend. We planned to launch this online-exclusive event later in 2020, after we wrapped up the year with our physical Fairs. Then, well, you know what happened next.

We pivoted, launched our first “Mini-Course” in April as a test, and were thrilled when more than 6,000 joined. Now, we’re excited to take this one-of-a-kind event to a new level with the Mother Earth News Fair Online: Summer 2020!

What Is Mother Earth News Fair Online: Summer 2020?
For this program, we’re using the Teachable platform. Here, we offer "courses," and each course features prerecorded video workshops hosted by the esteemed experts that make up the Mother Earth News Fair family, along with supporting materials and handouts. Each workshop video is 20 to 30 minutes long.


The online program features eight courses, each covering the Mother Earth News key content areas. These courses function similarly to stages at a physical Fair. Each topic features 6 to 8 workshop videos — more than 23 hours of workshops altogether! PLUS our SUMMER 2020 bundle also includes five prerecorded webinars!
