Sustainable Food & Farm Conference in Grass Valley Jan. 21 & 22
Jan 16, 2012 - Charlotte from Peaceful Valley
Hoo boy—leading lights of the sustainable farming world are coming to speak in Grass Valley this weekend!
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!
