I ran across this Ron Finley presentation on a blog that I follow from time to time. Ron totally changed my mind on where a garden can be planted and how much land is needed for a garden. Check out his presentation below. Let me know what you think.
Yes, I have a farming guru and his name is Joel Salatin. No, I don't own a farm but our backyard is becoming one. After doing some research and reading some blogs, I can across a self described lunatic farmer. He just makes sense and doesn't believe in or trust our current commercial food system. If I had a real farm, I'd probably do things similar to Joel.
This video from the UC Berkeley school of Journalism is just great. Yeah, it's an hour and half long but Joel is worth it. I find him funny and smart and I would love to see him speak in person. If you want a shorter run down on what Joel is about check out the video below.
