Joel Salatin Comes to Sterling College and Claire's in Hardwick

Joel Salatin, the noted environmentally friendly farmer, author, and lecturer featured in The Omnivore's Dilemma, will stop by the bar at Claire's this Saturday, May 9, at 7 pm for conversation and a bite to eat. Joel has been brought to our area by Sterling College to participate in their 2009 commencement. In addition to receiving an honorary degree, Joel is the College's commencement speaker. After the ceremonies on campus in Craftsbury Common, Joel will head into Hardwick and he looks forward to meeting our farmers, environmentalists, and farming enthusiasts. Join him at the bar and enjoy something to drink or eat as well as a good discussion.

Joel is the author of Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal: War Stories From the Local Food Front, and we are pleased to have this opportunity for conversation with him, co-sponsored by Sterling College. Visit the website of his family's Polyface Farm to learn more about their mission: “We are in the redemption business: healing the land, healing the food, healing the economy, and healing the culture.”
