The much-interviewed farmer, author and polyculture advocate is renowned for his wry observations about America's food system. On Saturday, Salatin passes through New Mexico to offer some of his earthy insights to the kids at Camino de Paz Montessori School and Farm. For $60 ($25 children under 11), you can listen in over a brunch assembled from ingredients raised right at the school. Students will also play marimba music and offer tours of the self-sustaining Santa Cruz, N.M., property, about 20 miles outside of Santa Fe. For tickets, which benefit the middle school Montessori, visit caminodepaz.net or call (505) 747-9717.
