Highlights form the Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa: Day 1

The second annual Heirloom Expo got off to a fine start today at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa. I took more than a hundred pictures of the fun, but decided to select just a few to share from today.

Tomorrow I'll be returning to visit more of the expo, and focus on seeing what's in the Biodynamic area. 

Lily Films was the expo - and selling swag along with THEIR NEW DVDs of SYMPHONY OF THE SOIL!
Must See! Screen Wed. at noon...or save yourself the gas money and buy the DVD.

Very funny bee teeshirts....choose from Worker, Drone or Queen Bee!

From the Sonoma State University Slow Food booth...I want this as a bumper sticker :)

That's what it's all about...

The incredible Hall of Flowers displays probably more than 1,000 kinds of heirloom varieties - a real treasure trove.
As important a collection as the Smithsonian. 
Slow Foods founder Carlo Petrini was the keynote speaker for the first of the three days of the festival.
He has humor, soul and a wonderful way with the audience which gave him a standing ovation.
