Keynote Presentation: Can We Feed The World?
Joel Salatin

Thursday evening, December 5, 2018

Even most foodies and environmentalists have a deep-seated assumption that were it not for the petroleum-based fertilizer boom – the green revolution – we could not feed ourselves. Those massive Kansas wheat fields and California almond groves, for most people, represent efficiency and abundance. Nothing could be further from the truth. In his speech, Joel Salatin will address the often-asked question "can we feed the world?" Joel will elaborate on why this is simply not the case and arm attendees with the ability to credibly challenge this assumption in the future.
