Join Brian DeVore of the Land Stewardship Project at the Farm Table Foundation for a discussion about his University of Wisconsin Press book,Wildly Successful Farming: Sustainability and the New Agricultural Land Ethic. DeVore’s book describes how ecological agrarians are using innovative techniques and strategies to develop their “wildly successful” farms as working ecosystems. Whether producing grain, vegetables, fruit, meat or milk, these next-generation agrarians look beyond the bottom line of the spreadsheet to the biological activity on the land as key measures of success.
DeVore will read from his book and lead a discussion about the role wildly successful farming ideas and techniques can play in helping conventional agriculture become more economically and agronomically resilient at a time when everything from the weather to the marketplace is increasingly volatile. We will also discuss what all of us as eaters can do to make our farming systems more wildly successful. Copies of Wildly Successful Farming will be available to purchase.
