Join us for a memorable evening with Dan Kittredge, organic farmer and executive director of the Bionutrient Food Association and Real Food Campaign. Dan connects the dots between human health and the way our food is grown in this interactive 2-hour presentation.

At this talk, you'll learn:

  • why human vitality depends on soil vitality
  • "root causes" and systemic solutions for the current epidemic of chronic degenerative illness
  • market- and community-driven strategies for reforming our food system
  • healing our environment and ourselves by producing and consuming the best quality food

Over the past century, the USDA and FDA have measured a steady decrease in both soil quality and nutrient levels in food. You would likely need to eat a dozen or more apples to get the same amount of iron, for example, from one of your grandparents’ apples. Across the board, the alarming trend in our food supply is a steady decline in nutrients since testing began 100 years ago. During a comparable period, degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and heart disease have risen to epidemic levels. While we understand that correlation does not prove causation, and that grasping complex relationships requires mountains of data over a long period of time, it is undeniable that human, crop, soil, and environmental health are deeply interconnected.

This discussion is offered as companion to the two-day workshop, "Principles of Biological Systems", held that weekend, March 2 & 3, also at Cross W Ranch. While this evening's workshop looks deeply at the correlations between human health, soil vitality, and the decline in nutrient quality in our food supply, the two-day weekend workshop provides a detailed framework for growers, gardeners and homesteaders to build healthier soils that grow food that is rich in the nutrients that our bodies need – and if that were not enough incentive, growing practices that produce higher yields, greater pest resistance, and food that simply tastes better!

Note: If you are registered for the "Principles of Biological Systems" workshop, attendance at this evening talk is free and encouraged!
