Mother Earth News Fair in Pennsylvania

Some random pics from the Fair yesterday. It’s an absolutely wonderful event. I’m finding a ton of interesting things here. For anyone interested in building, farming, homesteading, doing stuff for selves, there are countless items, ideas, demonstrations, lots of speakers on a variety of subjects.

I had 2-300 people at my Tiny Homes on the Move event yesterday. Biggest crowd I’ve ever had, and we had fun. They were with me or rather, they were with the builders/owners of these nomadic homes. A lotta rapport.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:
