That is, they’ll both be in Vancouver and environs. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if Michael Schmidt made a point of going to Joel Salatin’s lecture, titled “AN EVENING WITH A LUNATIC FARMER”, to be held in conjunction with UBC farm on Sept. 27 2010. Here’s the notice we received via our west coast correspondent:
In collaboration with UBC Farm, Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks is pleased to announce a fundraising evening with Joel Salatin, holistic farmer, author, educator and activist. On Polyface Farm in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, Joel and his family nurture a non-industrial, food production oasis. Instead of conventional methods of farming the Salatins debunk all conventional food production with their refreshing paradigm that respects the natural physiology of animals, the land, the rhythms of nature and human connectedness to it all.
A key personality in documentaries such as Fresh and Food Inc. and in Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Joel has been instrumental in supporting a new sustainable food production movement. Join us for an educational, humourous and inspiring evening with Joel as he discusses his family’s “beyond organic”, sustainable approach to farming. This evening Joel will also discuss his new book, The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer. Proceeds of ticket sales benefit UBC Farm.
Cost: $45.00 (includes a signed copy of The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer).Please call 604-688-6755 to register.

By way of clarification, the UBC Farm is the demonstration farm of the Agriculture department of the University of British Columbia.
The farm is having to contend for its life against the fact that it’s right beside some of the most expensive real estate in the world….
