Not-So-Simple, July 24-26

The Not-So-Simple Living Fair is a weekend of rural living skills education, homesteading workshops, back to the land demonstrations, music, and dance, held July 24-26, at the Mendocino County fairgrounds in Boonville.

This is a family event, featuring wholesome local food, socially responsible vendors, and much more.

Friday night entertainment begins with the Campout Cabaret. Local talent will perform by the campfire. Please bring an instrument, or story, or talent to share.

This year our workshop options are better than ever.

Choose from Alternative Energy, Bee Keeping, Dairy Culturing, Natural Building, and Fermentation to name a few.

All of our presenters donate their time. People teach at The Not-So-Simple Living Fair because they believe in our mission to offer affordable workshops all weekend.

This year we are pleased to add John Jeavons, Director of Ecology Action, Chris Tebbutt of Filligreen Farm, and Joe Craven to our list of presenters.

On Saturday night we host “The Worlds Best Pot Luck”: please bring a dish to share.

After dinner we dance out under the stars to the music of Joe Craven and his wonderful band Mamajowali.

On Sunday morning you won’t want to miss a sheep dog trial demonstration, including a human trial, where groups of people will attempt to herd a flock through the course.

Sunday will also be full of workshops and classes.

This year’s keynote speech will be given by Starhawk.

Tickets are available locally at The Ukiah Coop.
