10 am Opening Ceremony- MLA Rick Fraser
10:15 am to 11:15 am - Joel Salatin
Folks, This Ain't Normal, You Can Farm
Based on his book by the same title, this whimsical performance is filled with history, satire, and prophecy. While most Americans seem to think our techno-glitzy disconnected celebrity-worshipping culture will be the first to sail off into a Star Trek future unencumbered by ecological umbilicals, Salatin bets that the future will instead incorporate more tried and true realities from the past.
Ours is the first culture with no chores for children, cheap energy, heavy mechanization, computers, supermarkets, TV dinners and unpronounceable food. Although he doesn't believe that we will return to horses and buggies, wash boards, and hoop skirts, Salatin believes we will go back in order to go forward, using technology to re-establish historical normalcy.
That normalcy will include edible landscapes, domestic larders, pastured livestock, solar driven carbon cycling for fertility, and a visceral relationship with life's fundamentals: food, energy, water, air, soil, fabric, shelter. We may as well get started enthusiastically than be dragged reluctantly into this more normal existence. Rather than being an abstract, cerebral, academic look at ecology, food systems, and soil development, this talk is based firmly on a lifetime spent communing with ecology, economics, and emotion in their full reality, as a farmer.
Both sobering and inspiring, this performance empowers people to tackle the seemingly impossibly large tasks that confront our generation. Historical contexts create jump-off points for the future-a future as bright as our imagination and as sure as the past.

Due to busy work and family life, children's health is steadily being compromised with fast food and processed grocery store options. Proof of such lifestyles are reflected in the steady rise of childhood obesity, diabetes and other health concerns. By changing how we as caregivers view food and its functionality, and by simply adding in certain superfoods in delicious recipes, we can ensure that our children and grandchildren avoid being one of the statistics. Food is meant to be super - as are our children and let Ann show you how easy it can be!

4:15 pm to 5 pm - Dr. William Davis
Wheat: The Un-Healthy Whole Grain
We are advised by dietitians and other "official" providers of dietary advice to cut fat and cholesterol and eat more "healthy whole grains." What they do not tell you is that the wheat of today is nothing like the wheat of 40 or 50 years ago.
Modern wheat is a high-yield strain created by geneticists during the 1960s and 1970s. Rather than the 4 1/2-foot tall "amber waves of grain" we all remember, modern wheat is a dwarf variant that stands 2 feet tall. But outward appearances are only the beginning. There have been extensive genetic and biochemical changes introduced into this plant.
The problem: No questions asked about the suitability of high-yield dwarf strains of wheat for human consumption.
The result: An incredible range of human illness from obesity, to diabetes, to joint pain and acid reflux.
Dr. Davis will discuss how and why this peculiar situation was allowed to occur and how we can all take control over weight and health by eliminating it from the diet.
5 pm to 6 pm - Andrew W. Saul, Ph.D.
High-Dose Vitamin Therapy for Major Diseases
High doses of vitamins have been known to cure serious illnesses for 70 years. Chest specialist Frederick Klenner, M.D., was curing multiple sclerosis and polio back in the 1940s. William Kaufman, M.D., cured arthritis, also in the 1940s. In the 1950s, Drs. Wilfrid and Evan Shute were curing various forms of cardiovascular disease with vitamin E, and psychiatrist Dr. Abram Hoffer was using niacin to cure schizophrenia, psychosis, and depression. In the 1960s, Robert Cathcart, M.D. cured influenza, pneumonia and hepatitis. In the 1970s, Hugh D. Riordan, M.D., was obtaining cures of cancer with intravenous vitamin C. All of these doctors used very high doses. And, all these doctors reported great patient safety. If your doctor is not treating you primarily with nutrition, you have the wrong doctor.
If the word "cure" intrigues you, this presentation will also. Andrew W. Saul is going to discuss which nutrients can be used in place of drug treatment, with dosage specifics and case stories of how this approach has worked so well for so many. The speaker, who is not a physician, has over 35 years' experience as a medical educator. Dr. Saul has published more than 170 peer-reviewed papers, has written a dozen books, and yet has no financial connection whatsoever to the health products industry. Come and learn the real story about how vitamins cure disease inexpensively, safely and effectively.
