Join the UNC Sustainability Office for the Earth Week celebration "Local Food: Talk & Taste." Well-known alternative farmer and local food advocate Joel Salatin will discuss how his methods heal the land, the community, and the eater, while treating farm animals humanely. In thought provoking and entertaining form, Salatin will highlight the differences between his approach and today's typical, large-scale farm. The talk will be followed by a book signing and local food tastings provided by select local vendors.
Joel Salatin is a third generation farmer in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. His family's farm, Polyface Inc., has been featured in Smithsonian Magazine, National Geographic, and Gourmet; in the films Food, Inc. and Fresh; and in the New York Times bestseller "Omnivore's Dilemma" by food writer Michael Pollan.
This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. RSVPs are requested to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 843-7284.
