Joel Salatin has been called the most influential farmer in America. He is the owner of the “beyond-organic” Polyface Farm, the author of 8 books, and one of the leading voices in the sustainable food movement today.
In addition to allowing you the opportunity to meet and listen to Joel Salatin and in an intimate setting, the event will celebrate the “Local Food Leaders” who are putting Joel Salatin’s principles into practice in our community. The meal will feature food prepared with local ingredients from the People's Food Co-op, The Grange Kitchen and Bar, The Raven's Club, Silvio's Organic Pizza, and The Brinery.
There will be an optional pre-event tour of the Washtenaw Food Hub from 3:30 - 4:00 PM for those interested in learning more about this exciting project.
The People's Food Co-op will donate profits to the Washtenaw Food Hub to continue their efforts in our food community.
Join us to celebrate Joel Salatin's influence on our community and to support Michigan's sustainable food future!

When & Where
People's Food Co-op of Ann Arbor & Café Verde
We are Ann Arbor's first natural-foods grocery store. For over 40 years we've served the community by offering local, natural and organic options in every department. We provide a space for the community to gather around fresh, healthy food in our very own Café Verde that serves hot-bar and salad-bar meals, grab-and-go foods, fair-trade organic coffees, tea, fresh juices and house-made baked goods. We are open seven days a week in Kerrytown just south of the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market. We are a democratically run, member-owned organization although you do not have to be a member to shop!
The Co-op offers classes, workshops and events on a regular basis to provide our community with increased access to information around their own health and well-being as well as the health of our community and the environment.
