Joel Salatin is coming to Alaska!
As part of ADF’s Nostalgia lecture series, Salatin will present the problems with mainstream food/agriculture systems, and how a return to traditional ways will help us for the future. There also will be an emphasis on permaculture and agriculture system design.
Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered on simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems.*
Joel Salatin, 59, calls himself a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer. Others who like him call him the most famous farmer in the world, the high priest of the pasture, and the most eclectic thinker from Virginia since Thomas Jefferson. Those who don’t like him call him a bio-terrorist, Typhoid Mary, charlatan, and starvation advocate.
With a room full of debate trophies from high school and college days, ten published books, and a thriving multi-generational family farm, he draws on a lifetime of food, farming and fantasy to entertain and inspire audiences around the world. He’s as comfortable moving cows in a pasture as addressing CEOs in a Wall Street business conference.
His wide-ranging topics include nitty-gritty how-to for profitable regenerative farming as well as cultural philosophy like orthodoxy vs. heresy. A wordsmith and master communicator, he moves audiences from laughs one minute to tears the next, from frustration to hopefulness. Often receiving standing ovations, he prefers the word performance rather than presentation to describe his lectures.
Advance purchase/registration (even for season pass holders) is highly recommended.
TICKETS: Admission is $20 ($15 w/ student ID). There will be very limited seats available at the door.
FRI & SAT. MAY 5 & 6 @ 8PM
