Events

In addition to the workshops on high bionutrient crop production that we offer, the Bionutrient Food Association continues to travel throughout the country, connecting with growers - farmers, gardeners, and those generally interested (we all eat food!) – to explain the process and benefits of growing crops with higher bionutrient levels.

2016 Yale Food Systems Symposium
When: September 30, 2016
Where: School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, 195 Prospect St, New Haven, CT
 [map]
The 4th Annual Yale Food Systems Symposium is an interdisciplinary conference initiated by students at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies with the aim to provide a space where researchers, practitioners, theorists, and eaters can come together to answer the pragmatic question: how can we get from here, to a just, sustainable food system? The YFSS privileges new ideas that push the conventional boundaries of food systems thinking, and as such seeks to highlight emerging researchers, innovative projects, truly interdisciplinary thinking, and non-traditional collaboration.

Increasing Quality in the Food Supply - Introductory Lectures About Bionutrient Food
In anticipation of our upcoming High Bionutrient Crop Production workshop series, Dan Kittredge will be touring the Northeast offering intro lectures for you to learn more about the importance of bionutrient-rich foods and the exciting form of biological and energetic farming that integrates scientific principles in simple, common sense ways that empower growers to significantly improve their crops. Explains Dan, "For me, it’s about looking at food and plants in a new way – providing the ideal environment for a plant’s genetic potential to manifest itself.”

For EATERS & GROWERS: Soil is KEY to Quality Food: A Two-Day Workshop, New York, NY
March 30, 2013, from 9:30am-4:30pm  ||  353 West 48th St (8th & 9th Ave)   [ map ]

This is the second session of the two-part workshop.

In conjunction with Traditional Nutrition Guild and Nourishing Cities, Dan Kittredge will be presenting a two-day workshop encompassing a practical and philosophical approach to soil management, where participants will learn innovative and reliable principles and practices for producing nutrient-dense food.

Cost for the workshop is $150 for both days, if registering on or before January 18, 2013. If you can only attend one of the workshop days, cost is $75 for either day individually. Registration at the door on the day of the first workshop will be $175. Inquire about barter opportunities for reduced rates.

For more information, download a flyer, or visit http://tiny.cc/fcs-soilworkshop2.

Registration for the workshop is available online at http://www.nycharities.org/Events/EventLevels.aspx?ETID=5641

The learning focus of the courses includes soil biology, mineralogy, and energy dynamics. Each session will consist of classroom style discussion including review of soil test results. Participants are encouraged to interact and form a network of like minded growers and eaters.

The courses will begin with an analysis of participants' soil tests, discussion about cover crops, and recommended soil amendments. These are ways to build the 'battery' of the soil and stimulate its digestive processes to assure maximum potential for effective crop growth and improved yield in the following spring and summer.

Specific forward-looking topics and themes will be addressed and explored, and a gradual immersion will take place as we reach an increasing depth of understanding about the multi-faceted nature of the biological system of the soil and the interaction that takes place between the soil, the air, the plants and our observations and interventions.

Backyard Growing Series: Increasing Nutritional Quality in Food, Westminster, MA
What if the criteria for success in agriculture were the nutrient content of produce, rather than quantity of yield per acre? Farmers growing high-nutrient crops could command a higher price by delivering greater value, and consumers would reap the healthful benefits of plants and animals grown for full DNA expression. High-nutrient crops yield the best taste with the added bonus of needing much less disease and insect control (organic or conventional control is still control). Dan Kittredge will introduce the basic guidelines behind bionutrient-rich crops and show you a basic test that you can use to find out what kind of quality food your family is eating.
Details: Free and open to the public, the evening discussion will be Tuesday, February 19, from 6:30 - 7:30pm at the Eloranta Room, Forbush Memorial Library, Westminster, MA. [ Map ]

2013 Soil & Nutrition Conference: Putting Principles into Practice, Northampton, MA
NOFA/Mass and Bionutrient Food Association present the 2013 Soil and Nutrition Conference with John Kempf, Dan Kittredge, and Derek Christianson.

This conference aims to grow the movement for enhancing soil fertility as a basis for the long-term ecological and economic sustainability of farming, the environment, and society as a whole. The focus of this year’s conference is applying practical management strategies on the farm from principles of biological soil fertility. Our lead speaker is John Kempf from Middlefield, OH. John speaks in clear practical language about scientific understandings of plant ecosystems and how the health of people is connected to healthy land and quality produce.

Presenters:
John Kempf is a speaker on soil fertility, farm consultant, and proprietor of Advancing Eco-Agriculture.
Dan Kittredge is a farmer and director of Bionutrient Food Association.
Derek Christianson is a CSA farmer at Brix Bounty Farm in Dartmouth, MA.

Conference Outline

Thursday, January 31 - 8:30am to 8:30pm: Day One

1. What a Plant Needs, Soil Tests, and the Costs and Benefits of Fertility: Understand how different soil tests can inform soil management that maximizes plant health, within a reasonable fertility budget.

2. Minerals (and Microbes) – In Depth: For 17 macro and trace minerals, we’ll cover specific functions in the plant, needed quantities per acre, sources, logistics for application, and conditions that affect bio-availability.

3. Tillage, Compost, and Cover Crops: Methods for these agricultural techniques that build organic matter and humus, break up plowpans, and incorporate crop residue by enhancing the biological vitality of soil.

4. Seed Quality, Sprouting and Germination Sequence: How seed quality affects healthy plant growth; preferred seed size and yield potential; using inoculants and nutrition to improve plant growth from germination to first week.

Evening Session, 7:00pm (open to the public): Screening and discussion of film, "Symphony of the Soil".

Friday, February 1 - 8:30am to 5:30pm: Day Two

5. Plant’s Biological Systems and Tools for Analysis: Looking at soil as the plant’s digestive system, we’ll review an array of instruments for analyzing that system’s health. The goal is identifying deficiencies before symptoms appear.

6. Visual Analysis and In Season Crop Management, Critical Points of Influence: Train your eye to see tell-tale signs in fruit, grass, and different vegetable families that indicate problems to come and short-term interventions to make.

7. In-Season Fertility Management, Crop Needs at Different Points in the Season: Focusing on practical fertigation and foliar programs, we’ll cover what to apply mid-season, how to apply it, and why. We’ll cover nutritional needs of multiple crop types.

8. Pests and Diseases – Enhancing Plant Immunity: Facilitate plant-microbial interactions for controlling plant pathogens and averting pest problems.

Evening Session, 7:00pm: Problem solving discussion on selected agronomic challenges conference participants face.

Re-Mineralizing the Landscape, Lynnfield, MA
Go beyond compost for vibrant, long-lasting, resilient landscapes that resist disease, pests and weeds. One-hour workshop followed by a half hour of questions and discussion.

Successive generations of land use have depleted Northeast soils of minerals essential to plant health. As a result, landscapes are at a heightened susceptibility to pests, disease, and weeds. Compost, organic fertilizers, and biological inoculants are inadequate to correct these deficits - however, when applied to soil with a restored mineral profile, their effectiveness can be maximized. In this workshop, soil fertility expert Dan Kittredge will explain the scientific principles of soil re-mineralization, plant health, and resilience in landscape ecosystems; he will also suggest some ways to identify and address deficits for healthier organic landscapes and gardens.

This talk will be presented on Thursday, August 23, 7:00-8:30pm at the Old Meeting House, 617 Main St., Lynnfield, MA. [ Map ]
Open to the Public. Suggested Donation: $15 general public, $12 NOFA Members and AOLCPs. Register here: http://www.nofamass.org/programs/landcare/index.php
