NOFA-NJ Book Club: Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal

July 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join Jon McConaughy and NOFA-NJ for a book club discussing topics at the core of the good food movement. The book club will meet on the second Tuesday of each month (except August) at Brick Farm Market, led by Jon and Robin McConaughy or a guest speaker. Free to the public, although donations are gratefully received. Those who wish to purchase dinner at Brick Farm Market are requested to arrive at 6:30 pm before the program starts as the kitchen closes by 7 pm.
Synopsis of “Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal” by Joel Salatin:
Drawing upon 40 years’ experience as an ecological farmer and marketer, Joel Salatin explains with humor and passion why Americans do not have the freedom to choose the food they purchase and eat. From child labor regulations to food inspection, bureaucrats provide themselves sole discretion over what food is available in the local marketplace. Their system favors industrial, global corporate food systems and discourages community-based food commerce, resulting in homogenized selection, mediocre quality, and exposure to non-organic farming practices. Salatin’s expert insight explains why local food is expensive and difficult to find and will illuminate for the reader a deeper understanding of the industrial food complex. Joel Salatin and his family own and operate Polyface Farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. The farm produces pastured beef, pork, chicken, eggs, turkeys, rabbits, lamb and ducks, servicing roughly 6,000 families and 50 restaurants in the farm’s bioregion. He has written 11 books to date and lectures around the world on land healing, local food systems.
