Ollas at the Mother Earth News Fair

Ollas at the Mother Earth News Fair

I will be at the Mother Earth News Fair in a few weeks, talking about Ollas (and selling them too!).

For those of you who don’t know about the Mother Earth News Fair…it’s an amazing garden/homesteading show where you can learn about sustainable practices for your home and garden. Whether you are interested in growing organic vegetables, making your own cheese or getting off the grid with solar power, you’ll find the experts and info you need at the Mother Earth News Fair.

Mother Earth News Fair Albany OregonPlug and Play Gardens (that’s me!) will be exhibiting at the Mother Earth News Show on June 4th and 5th. I’ll be in Booth #3305 and of course I’ll be showcasing Dripping Springs Ollas. But I’ll also be doing a presentation on Sunday explaining the benefits of using clay pot irrigation in your garden.

Speaking About Ollas

My presentation covers a bit about the history and science of Ollas…but really concentrates on the top 10 reasons to use Ollas in your garden. The best part is that I’ve been collecting photos and success stories from gardeners who have tried Ollas and love the results.

Here are the details about the lecture, I hope to see you in the audience:
