In photos: Mother Earth News Fair

Hundreds of locals perused the booths at Mother Earth News Fair this weekend, purchasing local seeds, soaps, gardening supplies and other wares on the grounds of the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center.

Vendors came from all across the country for the event, and locals mixed with non-locals as everyone discussed handmade products, sustainable living and environmental issues. Children and adults alike stopped to stare at the various animals on site, including alpacas, sheep, horses and ducklings.
