If you’ve watched Food, Inc. or read The Omnivore’s Dilemma, or even if you’ve been in the foodie crowd long enough, you’ve probably heard of Joel Salatin, the alternative farmer from Virginia. In January, you can hear him in person.
He’ll be speaking at Calvin College’s January Series on January 17, 2012, beginning at 12:30 PM. As you may know from previous January Series events, parking can be a challenge, so arrive early. Or, you can attend at one of the several live streaming sites around West Michigan (and beyond).
For those wanting to get a little more up close, Nourish Organic Market is hosting a booksigning with Salatin the evening before (January 16–time to be announced).
Don’t forget, you can find more great events like these at the Eat Local, West Michigan! calendar.
