Joel Salatin: “Strategic disturbance is the key to environmental innovation.”

Huh? What the heck does that mean, aside from the usual bullshit called “sustainable development?” Well, watch the trailer, and better yet the film, Polyfaces. At this farm, symbiosis connects it all together, everything works with everything else, mimicking nature! The cows disturb the soil (briefly, many times a year, each time allowing it to regenerate). Their poop fertilizes the soil. The chickens follow the cows to eat the bugs in the poop . . . on and on.

Salatin: “If you are really passionate about this, then the first step is up to you, and the second step can only come after you’ve taken the first step.”
