Joel Salatin @ the Urban Farm Store in PDX - 8.13.2009!!


Popularized recently in Michael Pollan’s ‘The Omnivore’s Dilemma’, Joel, a Virginia farmer and author, has been one of the leading figures in the effort to reform the way we produce and distribute our food.

I am very pleased to announce that Joel Salatin, respected farmer and author, will make a free appearance at The Urban Farm Store (1925 SE Morrison St. Portland, OR 97214) from 4:30-5:30 on August 13th. He will be signing his books and promoting a lecture later that night. Joel will be speaking on the importance of the plant-animal symbiosis to heal the landscape, the community, and the eater.

The lecture, 7-9PM at 5626 NE Alameda, will benefit the Hollywood Farmers' Market. Tickets for that lecture will be available at our store and at the door for $25 per person.

Tickets are also for sale at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market booth, Saturdays from 8am to 1pm. Or you can reach the market at 503-709-7403 or

Event Location: Friendship Masonic Center at 5626 NE Alameda Street (located at 57th and NE Sandy Blvd.) Parking is across the street on Alameda St. and the Masonic Center is serviced by bus lines #12 and #71.
