For Immediate Release

Joel Salatin, farmer, author, and food relocalization advocate, comes to
Santa Barbara as part of the Carbon Economy Educational Series.

SANTA BARBARA, CA ?   ?Imagine what it would be if, as a national policy, we
had such nutritionally dense food that people actually felt better, had more
energy, and weren?t sick as much?now see, that?s a noble goal.? - Joel
Salatin, Polyface Farms.

Joel Salatin, fulltime family farmer of the highly successful Polyface
Farms, recipient of the Heinz Award for Environmental Leadership, and one of
the world?s leading advocates of farming and food relocalization, is coming
to Santa Barbara December 9-11 as part of the Carbon Economy Educational

?Meet the best, loudest (and only) Christian-libertarian-capitalist
-environmentalist-lunatic farmer on the face of planet Earth?. a darling of
the environmental left but with increasing cachet and respect from the
religious right may make him the catalyst in bringing the two groups
together,? says the Christian Science Monitor.

Featured in Michael Pollan?s book, Omnivore?s Dilemma, and in the films
FRESH and FOOD, Inc., Joel himself is the author of six books including
Family Friendly Farming, Salad Bar Beef, and his latest, Everything I Want
To Do Is Illegal.   His speaking and writing reflect
dirt-under-the-fingernails experience punctuated with mischievous humor.
Joel passionately defends small farms, local food systems, and the right to
opt out of the conventional food paradigm.

Joel Salatin will be providing a public talk on Wednesday, December 9th at
the Faulkner Gallery at the Central Library in Santa Barbara, a lecture for
anyone who eats!   Salatin will inspire participants to engage in the
relocalization movement through his direct and honest experience.
 Following, on December 10th and 11th, Salatin will provide a 2-day
intensive training sharing his own successful farming and relationship
marketing model at Polyface Farms, and opening up the discussion to
relocalization opportunities and challenges for communities.
