Healing the Planet One Plate at a Time
Though it seems simplistic to think that a bite of food can have such a big effect on the future, the fact is that we are where we are because of the kinds of food bites people have been taking for a long time. We can change our trajectory only when we appreciate the launch pad — our plates. This convocation will focus on the importance of what we eat. Joel Salatin, who calls himself a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer and is co-owner of Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia as well as author of nine books, will address the link between what we eat and the landscape legacy we bequeath to our unborn children. Joel’s farm was featured in the New York Times bestseller Omnivore’s Dilemma and award-winning documentary “Food Inc.” and services more than 5,000 families, 50 restaurants, 10 retail outlets, and a farmers’ market.
