Have you seen the commercial that states "great cheese comes from happy cows"? Well here's a new one...happy plants come from healthy soil.
The mission of the Real Food Campaign is to restore human health by renewing the minerals and life in soils to optimize the nutrient quality of food, to support farmers in applying biological principles in effective soil stewardship, and to create Standards and Certification to deliver authentic Nutrient-Dense food to consumers.
Next week, the Real Food Campaign will be presenting “Introduction to Nutrient Dense Crop Production” which asks two questions: How can we build vitality in our soils, crops and bodies? And, how can we better understand the complex relationship between soil, crop nutrition, and human health? Dan Kittredge, Director of the Real Food Campaign will be there to speak about the 5-Day Course on Nutrient Dense Crop Production. Starting in December 2010, the 5-Day Course will be held in several locations in CT, MA, NY, and VT. Designed to educate participants in reliable principles and practices to produce more nutritious food crops, the course will include classroom discussions and hands-on demonstrations. Dan will also be available to answer any questions about the Real Food Campaign. For more information, you can check out the flier here.
Here's a video of Dan talking about the importance of soil management and the 5-Day Course.
This presentation will be held on Monday, November 29th at Mansfield (CT) Town Hall from 7:00pm-9:00pm. This event is free and open to the public so you definitely do not want to miss the opportunity to hear about this great organization!
