The National Heirloom Exposition is a not-for-profit event centered on the pure food movement, heirloom vegetables, and anti-GMO activism. With more than 70 speakers and 250 natural food vendors, last year’s event was the largest gathering in pure food history! The Heirloom Expo has gained incredible interest among home growers, farmers, school groups and the general public–so much so that it is being called the “World’s Fair of the pure food movement!”
Other speakers on Thursday include Harvindar Singh, Bay Area Forager for Whole Foods (11am), Michael Dimock, Executive Director of Roots of Change (2pm) and fermentation maestro Sandhor Katz (4pm).
