The annual Good Earth Home and Garden show recently concluded in Eugene on 25 January 2009. As a “green” show, it had a good home in the Emerald Empire. I’ve gone to a lot of shows at the fairgrounds, and can’t recall one with better attendance.
Admittance was free, which is a plus in these hard times. There were some 69 seminars held and 250 exhibits. There was a common element of sustainability or naturalness to most exhibits and seminars. Seemingly, Eugene is a hotbed for sustainable practices.
I stopped by to see a friend of mine who was exhibiting. She was so busy, I put my bag down and helped her work her booth. It was a blast. Make it a point to attend the next show and you’ll have a good time.
