About MOTHER EARTH NEWS INSTITUTES:

The INSTITUTE is a relatively new event concept designed for people looking to go deeper into interesting, fun and educational experiences over several days. Each INSTITUTE explores one or two topics at a greater level of intensity than the workshops at our flagship MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR events. Our national events team is constantly researching various topics, such as artisan cheesemaking, backyard beekeeping, raising heritage breeds, heirloom vegetable gardening, herbal health, agri-business and more. The inaugural Institute, The Joy of Cheese, was held in November, 2015, followed by The Basics of Beekeeping in May, 2016.
