Kentucky Green Living Fair 2013 Wrap-Up

I wanted to say thank you to everyone who attended the Kentucky Green Living Fair, whether as a guest or an exhibitor! I feel so fortunate that Sustainable Kentucky’s first event was a huge success. I don’t think success can be measured in numbers (although, yes, a lot of you showed up!) but I think it can be measured in good will. I’ve been overwhelmed with lovely emails from many kind folks who had a great time learning and connecting and simply enjoying being with like-minded people from around Kentucky.

I think my dear friend Rona Roberts of Savoring Kentucky summed it up best…

Kentucky can feed all Kentuckians well and permanently. Today’s #greenky event in Pulaski County moved us closer to that vision.

I think our event was successful because we simply had THE BEST exhibitors in Kentucky. I can’t say enough about the amazing people that helped make this event possible. Visit the fair website for a complete list.

Thanks also to the Barn at Redgate for hosting the party—check ’em out for all your event needs! Also, if you are looking for an event planner, I know a guy—drop me a line and I’ll connect you with my brother who is THE MASTER at making the tiny, behind-the-scenes details happen. I’ve heard lots of, “But you would never know this was a first time event!” and that is because he took years of planning experience and graciously shared it (and a lot of hard work) with me!

Here’s a few snapshots from the day:

    Thanks so much for the shout out for my blog! I have another photo post from Wednesday about the fair here: I also hope to have at least one more post next week about the fair.

    Thanks so much for organizing this wonderful event! I am so sorry that we didn’t get to meet in person, but I will be back next year.
