Look and See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry

HOSTED BY SPIKE GJERDE

“Henry County, like many rural communities across America, has become a place of quiet ideological struggle. In the span of a generation, the agrarian virtues of simplicity, land stewardship, sustainable farming, local economies and rootedness to place have been replaced by a capital-intensive model of industrial agriculture characterized by machine labor, chemical fertilizers, soil erosion and debt – all of which have frayed the fabric of rural communities. Wendell Berry has watched this struggle unfold, becoming one of its most passionate and eloquent voices in defense of agrarian life.” (Two Birds)
