Farming, Community, and the Land
Wendell Berry’s passion for the land he lives on and the people he shares it with moves beyond just his written work; it infuses every aspect of his daily life. Join Wendell as he discusses the issues most meaningful to him: the need for a local economy that values property and cares properly for the land and the people who farm it, including such topics as land usage, farm policy, and local food infrastructure.
Wendell Berry is Kentucky’s premier living writer, a native and resident of Henry County whose poetry, fiction, and essays have garnered national renown for their direct yet expressive style and their dedication to the experiences modern society increasingly asks us to abandon. He has received more awards and recognitions than he would like us to list here, or indeed than we would even have room for. He is a farmer, itinerant teacher, and devotee of family and community, a champion of land stewardship, sustainable farming, and mindful living.
