The “faster, bigger, cheaper” approach to food is slowly draining dry our planet’s resources and compromising your health.
The Earth’s soil is depleting at more than 13 percent the rate it can be replaced.
The documentary “FRESH” celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system.
On Sunday evening I went to listen to two talks by Joel Salatin. For me Joel is something of a super star – he was described by the NYTimes as the “high priest of the pasture” (though he describes himself as a Christian-conservative-libertarian-environmentalist-lunatic). The holistic methods and ideologies used at his Polyface farm are described in detail in the Omnivore’s Dilemma and featured in Food Inc. and are at once simple and logical and yet totally revolutionary (given the general status quo in the food industry) – Polyface is a place ‘beyond organic’, a chemical free paradise that celebrates the pigness of pigs, builds a strong soil teaming with organic life and opens its doors to consumers to see where their food comes from.
