   We're off to Santa Rosa for the Heirloom Expo.  It's an exposition highlighting the diversity and benefits of heirloom varieties in agriculture.  Cobb Elementary will have their own booth at the Expo focusing on the Three Sisters as they were known to Native Americans.  We have a three sisters bed planted in our garden showing how corn, beans, and squash grow together in the garden.  It should prove to be a fun day full of learning opportunities.  Check out the link above.

Join seed companies, farmers, gardeners, chefs and food organizations for the National Heirloom Exposition in Santa Rosa, California, at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. This will likely be the largest event for heritage agriculture ever held. Learn from America’s top growers and food celebrities! Enjoy workshops, demonstrations and great music.

Enjoy our heritage livestock show brought to you in part by the
American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
Dozens of heritage poultry and small livestock breeds will be on display.
