Invitation from Eileen Pusey,
"Our son constructed three chicken tractors for the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Farm here in Raleigh for his Eagle Scout project. We are excited that Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm in VA has agreed to come and speak at our son's Court of Honor this week. We realize that this is a rare opportunity to have Mr. Salatin in the Raleigh area and would like to invite any who might be interested in hearing him speak to attend. Since the event is first and foremost an Eagle Court of Honor, Mr. Salatin's remarks will be limited to 20-30 minutes and there will be no question/answer session. Still, it will be worthwhile to hear him speak. If you are interested in attending, please R.S.V.P. to Eileen Pusey at [masked]. "
Here are the details:
Eagle Court of Honor
Wednesday, February 6, 2013, 7:00 p.m.
To be held at the LDS Chapel (please no grubby attire)

Cary, NC 27511

Special Guest Speaker Joel Salatin
Topic: "Honoring Healing Feathers."
Pastured chickens in portable shelters perform a host of healing tasks. Their eggs and meat pack more nutrition into every bite while the birds themselves stimulate biomass growth and recycle waste streams. Providing a habitat that encourages the chicken to express her chickenness massages our ecological womb with care and protection.
**Please R.S.V.P. to Eileen Pusey at [masked] if you plan to attend.**
Salatin's 550-acre (2.2 km2) farm is featured prominently in Michael Pollan's book The Omnivore's Dilemma (2006) and the documentary films, Food, Inc. and Fresh.
