Joel Salatin to Speak at Sustainability Summit
Dec 31, 2012 03:39PM
The Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) is conducting a series of four workshops, beginning from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., March 27, on their Mountain View campus. The presenter of the first lecture, Ballet in the Pasture, is Joel Salatin, a full-time farmer in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley at Polyface Farms.
The intention of the Carbon Economy Series lectures and workshops is to help the average homeowner, food gardener, farmer, rancher, land owner and landscape professional get more value from their practice and to use waste as a resource, while returning biology and vitality to the soil.
Polyface Farm’s choreographed plant-animal symbiosis heals the landscape, the community and the eater. In a theatrical performance mixing humor and food system analysis, Salatin educates, entertains and encourages, while photographs allow the audience to take a virtual tour around the grass-based, multi-species livestock farm. He will also be the keynote speaker at the DCCCD Sustainability Summit at 9 a.m., March 28.
