The keynote speaker who kicked off this year’s Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) was Michael Reynolds, founder of Earthship Biotecture, and also known as “The Garbage Warrior”. Why, you ask, was the Garbage Warrior speaking at a sustainable farming conference? Others at the conference wondered the same – until Michael said this: “Independent of shifts from outside forces (the economy, the availability of petroleum-based materials and fuel, etc.) We want to ensure that individuals can continue to draw sustenance of life from the Earth”. Sounds like what farmers do doesn’t it?
