4.04.10 Lecture 1 Joel Salatin Big Apple
Lecture 1:
CAN YOU FEED THE WORLD?--ANSWERING ELITISM, PRODUCTION, AND CHOICE:
By far and away the two most common questions asked of Joel Salatin are:  How can we afford local artisanal heritage-based food? And: Is it realistic to think we can really feed the world with a non-industrial food system? Because the local clean food movement, for all its allure, is still only some 2 percent of all food sales, envisioning it as a credible, viable alternative to industrial corporatized genetically modified food seems like pie-in-the-sky dreaming.  Using his own Polyface Farm principles as a foundation, Joel builds this vision one piece at a time by blending theory and practice.  You will never think about the food system the same way again.

Bio: Joel Salatin is an American farmer, lecturer, and author whose books include You Can Farm and Salad Bar Beef. Salatin raises livestock using holistic methods of animal husbandry, free of potentially harmful chemicals, on his Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia. Salatin's 550-acre farm is featured prominently in Michael Pollan's book, The Omnivores Dilemma, and the documentary film, FRESH.
