Interested in making mead like a viking? Constructing a tiny home to call your own? Keeping your goat herd healthy the holistic way? There’s a class for you at Mother Earth News’ Vermont fair. Billed as “the original guide to living wisely,” the bimonthly American magazine has preached simple, sustainable lifestyles since 1970. Local, national and even international experts, such as Québécois farmer Jean-Martin Fortier (pictured), bring their expertise to 150 hands-on workshops. Topics range from solar energy to seed starting, green building to gardening hacks and backyard foraging to beginner beekeeping. If you love Mother Earth, this is news you can definitely use.

Price: $10-40; free for kids 17 and under.
