Farmer Joel Salatin

KSUT executive director Beth Warren left her interview with author and farmer Joel Salatin feeling like she simply had to become a localtarian (buy and eat food purchased within a few hundred-mile radius of her home).

“Interviewing Joel Salatin was inspiring and I encourage everyone to attend one of his presentations this weekend,” wrote Warren after the interview. “He walks his talk and I can’t wait to put his suggestions into practice when choosing, buying and cooking my family’s food.”

Warren’s family and friends, however, reminded her that it might be kind of hard finding things like oranges and pineapples if she walks Salatin’s sustainable walk, but she maintains that she’ll at least be more conscious of the food she eats and think about where everything that goes on her family’s plates comes from.

See if Salatin’s interview has the same effect on you.

And if you want to see the man in person, he’ll be giving a talk at the Four State Ag Expo at 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Saturday, March 21, and he’ll be giving another talk from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 22, at the Fort Lewis College Ballroom in Student Union Building for the La Boca 2009 Annual Meeting. $7 without a LBCS Membership
and $20 for a Seedling Membership to LBCS and free access to Annual Meeting and Salatin’s talk.

Beth,

Thanks for a great interview! Joel has long been a hero in the sustainability movement and a powerful spokesperson for local farmers, creative thinkers, and people who like to eat good food!

I sure appreciate your featuring him on KSUT. You continue to be my favorite station, even from over the mountains in the San Luis Valley!

My best,
Rio
