Facebook, Fairs, Date Weekend & A Giveaway

This is one of those conglomeration posts.  A mishmash if you will.

First thing – I have set up a *new* Facebook page for the Sacred Bee’s Blog.  Here is a direct link.  Become a fan!  And, help spread the word!

Jacob and I have a budgetary constraint that we set up many years ago that helps avoid unnecessary mailings, paper waste and clutter – we each get one magazine subscription.  My magazine of choice has been the same for about three years now – Mother Earth News.   I used to check it out from the library, but then I realized that I was re-checking out the same issues over and over because the information was helpful and never out of date.  The magazine has bits and pieces that cover everything from vegetable gardening to eco-conscious lifestyles and animal husbandry to natural health.  It really is a must read.

Well, imagine my happiness when I found out they were hosting a “Mother Earth News Fair” in Puyallup (about three hours from us) for an entire weekend in June.  And, then imagine my thrill when I found out Mother Earth News was sending me two press passes.  And, to add a bit more joy to it – imagine my delight when I found out my mom was free to watch Beckett for the whole weekend and Jacob and I could have a 48-hour date. 

Oh, and then there is the cherry on top – a giveaway of TWO pairs of weekend passes (valued at $30 for each pass!!) for two of you!  And, YES, these guest passes are for any of the Mother Earth News Fairs!!

Oh yeah!!  Now it’s getting real good!

Fair information:


“The Mother Earth News Fair will be a family-oriented sustainable-lifestyle event that features dozens of practical, hands-on demonstrations and workshops from the leading authorities on real food, renewable energy, small-scale agriculture, gardening, green building, green transportation and natural health. Additional activities include a seed swap, children’s activities, and livestock and craft demonstrations.  {And, the real reason we are going…} Joel Salatin is one of the keynote speakers, and we’ll have several beekeeping workshops, including one for kids!”

Up for grabs are TWO pairs of weekend passes to the Mother Earth News Fair in Puyallup, Washington (June 4th and 5th), San Rafael, California (Sept 3rd and 5th) or Seven Springs, Pennsylvania (Sept 24th and 25th) – whichever dates and places work for YOU!  These will get you into all the events on both days and are valued at $30 each – $60 for the pair.
