Back to Basics

 16th Annual

January 22, 2022

Co-hosted with the Pine River-Backus School Community Education

Back to Basics is the premier sustainable living event of north-central Minnesota! It combines workshops, vendors/exhibitors, a keynote, lunch, door prizes, and more to bring roughly 400 people together to share ideas on a wide variety of topics related to sustainability and resiliency. In addition to 40+ workshops, this event includes a large vendor area with 50+ booths providing educational materials, services, and locally made/grown goods of a sustainable nature. The vendor area is open to the public for free. School-aged (K-6) children’s programming runs concurrently so bring the family and enjoy the day together!

We are excited to plan for an in-person event for the 16th Annual B2B on January 22, 2022!

Save the Date! 


The 2021 Vendor Fair is still open! 

Even though Virtual Back to Basics 2021 is over, the Vendor Fair is still live and will remain up through the fall!  Connect with our vendors to find new products and services to help you live a more sustainable lifestyle. Show your favorite B2B Vendor some love and do a little online shopping.  Check back often, as many vendors frequently add new products or offer promotions!
