Member Benefit Course: Joel Salatin: Healing Agriculture   NEW!

The title of this lecture has a double meaning: a model that heals agriculture, and an agriculture that heals the ecology, the economy, and our health. Using Polyface Farm as a template, Joel Salatin walks you through the essential components of a radically different type of farm/food system that builds soil, increases hydrology, encourages wildlife, protects pollinators, stimulates biodiversity, and yields more dense and balanced nutrition in the food. Does this sound too good to be true? It is not and it's certainly not from Impossible Burger, hydroponic LED-grown vertical farms, genetically modified organisms or orthodox chemical industrial fare. Rather than dwelling on the negative, Salatin introduces you to the positive possibilities, already achieved during 60 years of his family's farming. If you ever wondered how to eat responsibly, this presentation will give you the answers. NOTE: OLLI at UVa participants enrolled in this lecture will have the chance to sign up for a Polyface Farm tour ($20 charge) at a later date in the spring.
