As we prepare to speak to Nolan, I did watch "Food Inc" again tonight and was inspired by Joel Salatin, the farmer featured in the movie.
I watched Dean Carlson's TED Talk as well. In both the movie and the TED Talk, there is an emphasis of "voting with your dollar".
Below are clips and links that I'd like to recommend that we have the class review before we go. Just a thought to help people get in the right frame of mind.
I find it interesting that each farm that we have discussed has a different way to stay resilient in changing times. The Y U Ranch uses a breed of cattle that is hearty and then reworked the ranch so that things were symbiotic. The Huls are converting their waste into energy.
