Forgiveness Farming with Joel Salatin

When

Wednesday, May 29th  /  6:00-7:30PM

Location

Ellwood’s Community Classroom

Instructor

Joel Salatin, Polyface Farms

Joel Salatin is a full-time farmer in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. A third generation alternative farmer, he returned to the farm full-time in 1982 and continued refining and adding to his parents’ ideas.

The family’s farm, Polyface Inc. (“The Farm of Many Faces”) has been featured in SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, GOURMET and countless other radio, television and print media. Profiled on the Lives of the 21st Century series with Peter Jennings on ABC World News, his after-broadcast chat room fielded more hits than any other segment to date. It achieved iconic status as the grass farm featured in the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller OMNIVORE’S DILEMMA by food writer guru Michael Pollan and the award-winning film documentary, FOOD INC.

Description

Modern industrial farming is far more fragile than most people realize.  It depends on cheap energy, plentiful water, boundless mineral mines, new generation pharmaceuticals and healthy soils, all of which are in tenuous circumstances today.  Polyface believes that agriculture’s mandate is to build resilience into the farmscape, to make it less susceptible to shocks.  At Polyface, we’ve designed infrastructure and production systems–even marketing systems–to be more forgiving and that ultimately creates a more secure, dependable food system.
