Joel Salatin In Person


Joel Salatin, the farmer and author, will give a free talk Wednesday October 26th at 7:00 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room at Redwood Elementary School in Fort Bragg. Gallery Bookshop will be on hand with copies of his new book, Folks, This Ain’t Normal, and sales will benefit the Noyo Food Forest.

Salatin, hailed by the New York Times as “Virginia’s most multifaceted agrarian since Thomas Jefferson [and] the high priest of the pasture” was profiled in the Academy Award nominated documentary “Food, Inc.” and the bestselling book “The Omnivore’s Dilemma”. In Folks, This Ain’t Normal he discusses how far removed we are from the simple, sustainable joy that comes from living close to the land and the people we love. Salatin writes with a wicked sense of humor and true storyteller’s knack for the revealing anecdote offering practical and philosophical ideas for changing our lives in small ways that have big impact.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call Gallery Bookshop at (707) 937-2665 or visit, or Noyo Food Forest at (707) 964 0218.
