Joel Salatin: Better Food = A Better Future

Since covid-19 first emerged, one of our continued recommendations has been to start a garden. The pandemic has exposed the fragility of our food supply chains, as well as the shortcomings of our global and national health authorities. So having more self-sufficiency when it comes to calories, as well as better nutrition to boost your immune system, just make good sense. Hence: start a garden. In this podcast, we welcome back Joel Salatin. Labeled by The Washington Post as the most famous farmer in America, Joel has spent his career advocating for sustainable farming practices and pioneering models that show how food can be grown and raised in ways that are regenerative to our topsoils, more humane to livestock, produce much healthier and tastier food, and contribute profitably to the local economy.
