Visionary farmer to speak at the PAC

Big Bear Lake, CA, May 17, 2013 – The Big Bear Lighthouse Project has recruited the country’s most influential farmer, Joel Salatin, to deliver the keynote address at their 2013 Community Summit. Salatin is a third generation alternative farmer in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. The family’s Polyface Farm has been featured in Smithsonian, National Geographic and Gourmet magazines, as well as countless other radio, television and print media outlets.

Salatin has authored eight books himself, including EVERYTHING I WANT TO DO IS ILLEGAL: War stories from the local food front and FOLKS, THIS AIN’T NORMAL: A Farmer’s Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World.
