About the event
What originally began as the St. Clair County Environmental Education Network to produce the annual Earth Fair event has now formally become a non-profit organization. St. Clair County Earth Fair received its 501c3 status August, 2014. Our board is committed to environmental education in St. Clair County and meets throughout the year to share education resources and collaborate on ways to improve environmental education opportunities in St. Clair County.
Our first Earth Fair was held in 2003. That first year was attended by no more than a handful of visitors and eight vendors barely taking up space in one building at Goodells County Park. Today, we are bursting at the seams having grown to over 8,000 visitors and over 70 vendors spread across six buildings. More than just a passing fad, Earth Fair has become a destination and is quickly growing to be one of Michigan’s largest and liveliest Earth Day celebrations!
Since Earth Fair’s inception, it has been held in conjunction with the St. Clair Conservation District’s annual spring tree sale. In fact, it was because of the Conservation District’s popular tree sale that Earth Fair was created. Their tree sale attracted quite an audience and we wanted to capitalize on that. Over the years, a mutual partnership has grown that benefits both organizations.
Why should you sponsor?
I believe this event is a fantastic opportunity for brands looking to reach health-conscious consumers here in Michigan. Once I bring my famous dark chocolate chia "Monkey Bars" there will definitely be a massive crowd.
I have been working in the food service industry since 2006. After graduating from culinary school, I worked numerous chef jobs, including the U.S. Army Reserves and the Food Network. I was pretty excited to work with them because of the mission of Food Revolution; to revamp the local school lunch programs and to inspire people to cook healthier meals.
Writing cookbooks was a natural progression for me. It seemed only natural to share my dishes with the world. At the end of the day, I love what I do. Honestly, cooking and writing are two jobs that I would do for free.
To date, I have penned three paperback cookbooks: Creative Cooking, The Quinoa Quest and Check Out Chia.
