Description

The trailer for Joel Salatin's introductory keynote from Permaculture Voices - Succession Success - Fields of Farmers. The average age of America's farmers is 60 years old. If young people can't get in, old people can't get out. In the next 15 years, nearly 50 percent of America's farmland will change hands. More than 50 percent of all farming equity is owned by people old enough to retire. Hermit curmudgeon farmers need to invest in the next generation. Young people need to invest in hermit curmudgeons. In this can-do presentation based on 20 years mentoring interns and apprentices to germinate young entrepreneurial farmers, Salatin will offer a road map for both generations to create fields of farmers for tomorrow.
