Here's what the exhibit has to offer:
Join seed companies, farmers, gardeners, chefs and food organizations for the National Heirloom Exposition in Santa Rosa, California, at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. This will likely be the largest event for heritage agriculture ever held. Learn from America’s top growers and food celebrities! Enjoy workshops, demonstrations and great music.
See over 2,000 varieties of heirloom produce on display. Growers and seed companies alike will display the diversity of heirlooms at this historic exhibition of our culinary heritage.
Enjoy our heritage livestock show brought to you in part by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Dozens of heritage poultry and small livestock breeds will be on display.
Bid on art, farm products and produce at our Garden Benefit Auction!
Vote on your favorite works of art during our Garden Art Show.
Participate bring your produce, animals and art to display at this historic event!
All profits from the National Heirloom Exposition will be donated to school garden projects and other food and garden-related charities!
This is going to be a fantastic day of learning about seeds, plants, gardening, food and animals for all of my kids (and me too.) If you're within driving distance to Santa Rosa, CA, I'd love to see you there!

Here's one of my favorite recipes that is easily made at home and beats any brand you can buy in the store.
Homemade *almost* Organic Hot Fudge:
4-1 ounce squares semisweet chocolate (if you can find organic, great!)
2 tablespoons organic butter
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
In a double broiler (I just put a glass bowl into a saucepan 1/4 of the way filled with water,) combine the milk, chocolate and butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Pour into warmed mason jar and seal with lid. Keep refrigerated until used completely...which may only be a couple of days. :)
