This is an excerpt of an interview that I conducted with Joel Salatin on May 22, 2013 in Big Bear Lake, CA.
Joel is so inspiring and really cares about helping people and changing things. Enjoy!
“Corn and beans are being grown to be mechanically harvested to be shipped somewhere to be fed to herbivores.
Why not just forget planting the annual, plant the perennial… or replant the perennial, let the animal self harvest, self fertilize.
The efficiencies of self harvest, of self fertilization, and elimination of all of the equipment for tillage and fertilization is astronomical.” Joel Salatin
See Joel speak in March 2014 at the Permaculture Voices Conference with Geoff Lawton, Allan Savory, Michael Pollan, Toby Hemenway, Paul Wheaton, Dr. Elaine Ingham, and A LOT more.
