On Tuesday, April 24 the People's Food Co-op of Ann Arbor will host sustainable agriculture pioneer and renowned author and lecturer Joel Salatin, as he presents the program, Local Food to the Rescue. Salatin is a self-proclaimed “libertarian-environmentalist-capitalist-lunatic-Farmer" who operates an alternative "beyond organic" farm. Located in Virginia, Salatin’s farm, Polyface, demonstrates how to produce large yields on a small-scale family farm using symbiotic polycultures. He is most known for his appearances in the documentaries Fresh and Food Inc. as well as Michael Pollan's best-selling book, The Omnivore's Dilemma. Salatin will discuss how local food and natural systems can help make communities more environmentally, economically and nutritionally sustainable. 8pm. $13 members & students/$15 public.
