The National Heirloom Exposition has such incredible interest among home growers, chefs, farmers, school groups, and the national media that it has become the “World's Fair” of the heirloom and local food movements.   This is a not-for profit event, and any funds generated above event costs will be donated to school gardens and special projects.
