Forgive me another video post right after the previous! But I found this video on Twitter today, and I just had to share it. It’s Joel Salatin, of Polyface Farm, the amazing, outspoken farmer who is doing things right. He’s been featured in Michael Pollan’s book The Omnivore’s Dilemma and in the movie Food, Inc., and he’s written a few books himself. The title of the talk is “Pathways to Relocalization,” but in it Joel hits on everything from our disconnection from each other, the importance of hearth & home, the sham of government “food safety” regulations, and why we need to reconnect locally in order to survive globally. This was recorded just a few days ago, too. The more I read from and listen to Mr. Salatin, the more I love him. This man is just full of awesome!
