Sustainable Food & Farm Conference in Grass Valley Jan. 21 & 22

Jan 16, 2012 -
  Sustainable Food & Farm Conference in Grass Valley Jan. 21 & 22
Six presentations on Saturday, Jan. 21 & ten nuts-and-bolts workshops on Sunday. One ticket for $30 or $40 covers both days.

Hoo boy—leading lights of the sustainable farming world are coming to speak in Grass Valley this weekend!

The Sustainable Food & Farm Conference will be two days of inspiration plus practical advice.

Joel Salatin, of Polyface Farm in Virginia, is returning by popular demand and he’ll speak TWICE on Saturday.

You know who he is—talked about by Michael Pollan and seen in the movie Food, Inc. Here’s a short video of Salatin’s visit to Chris Kerston’s farm, Chaffin Orchards, near Chico, California.

Three more outstanding keynote lecturers are the Welsh dairyman who founded British Organic Farmers and advises Prince Charles, Nicolette Hahn Niman of Niman Ranch, and urban farming organizer Michael Ableman.

Ten workshops and panel discussions on Sunday will address practical questions about how to make a sustainable farm work.

Get your tickets at BriarPatch, The Union, and online.

As Joel Salatin says, “We all vote three times a day with how we decide to eat, and so we can heal the land, one bite at a time.” Come join this movement!

Peaceful Valley is proud to be a sponsor of the Sustainable Food & Farm Conference. See you there!
