An Ecology Ethics Discussion With Joel Salatin at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR (Video)

Bryan Welch, publisher of MOTHER EARTH NEWS, sat down with farmer/philosopher Joel Salatin at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR in Seven Springs, Pa., to discuss farming, health and how physical labor helps us with living a life better connected to the land.

Joel Salatin is the author of multiple books, including Fields of Farmers, The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer and Everything I Want to Do Is Illegal. He lives and works on his multi-generational farm, Polyface Farms, in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, where he and his family raise pastured meats and organic crops.

In this conversation we learn why at the end of the day it's much more satisfying to do physical labor rather than to "blink your existence into cyberspace" and the many ways we can be good stewards of the land.

Buy The Sheer Ecstacy of Being a Lunatic Farmer and Everything I Want to Do Is Illegal from the MOTHER EARTH NEWS Book store.

Salitan is misquoted above: What Salitan actually says in the video is "blink your *creativity* into cyberspace."
