Product Description
$ 0.99

Agriculture, or industrial farming, as it is practiced today, may be the single most destructive human activity against the Earth that we currently employ. In response, a movement toward Restorative Farming, that looks to nature for its direction, is gaining momentum. The hunger for organic foods has never been greater. Millions of consumers are creating the demand that supports farm biodiversity and a healthy food supply. 


Joel Salatin is a third-generation authentic food farmer promoting food production that is environmentally sound and economically viable for both producer and consumer. He has authored four books on the food production system. His columns regularly appear in ACRES USA and Stockman Grass Farmer magazines. 

Fred Kirschenmann is president of Kirschenmann Family Farms, a 3,500-acre certified organic farm in Windsor, North Dakota, where he also was president (1990-1999) of Farm Verified Organic, a private organic certification agency. He is a leader of the organic/sustainable agriculture movement, and has served on many boards and advisory committees of such organizations. He has authored or co-authored numerous articles and book chapters dealing with ethics and agriculture. 

Wes Jackson is the founder and director of the Land Institute, an experimental research and educational organization located in Salina, Kansas. He was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 1992. His books include Becoming Native to this Place and Altars of Unhewn Stone.

Bioneers Series III

 Inspired by the philosophies of the Deep Ecology movement, the Bioneers are heroic examples of people living as if nature mattered. Join us as we look deeply into the magic and mystery of the convergence between leading-edge science and ancient wisdom for a Declaration of Interdependence for the new millennium. Though these programs were produced in the 1990s the contents of this series are timelessly relevant.
