The Essence of An Egg: Joel Salatin – TED Talk (2009 Video) About Food Quality & Local Farming

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

A few organic eggs“If we devote ourselves to sacredness in our vocations, the world will rise to meet us.”

An interesting talk by an impressively normal guy in Virginia who raises livestock with natural, God-intended methods. He is an author and lecturer on the topic and shares several ideas for “healing our land and food” in order to¬†revitalize our nation’s health. He is a political Libertarian, for the most part and for what it is worth,¬†who believes it is up to each of us, individually to make educated decisions about our food to change the food industry for the better in our country. I thought this was a nice place to begin considering learning more about food and food quality.

The talk is about 18 minutes long … please check it out and tell me what you think.

Links to a few of his books are below the video.
