The first speaker in the series is:
Soil Expert and Organic Farmer
Dan Kittredge
Director of Bionutrient Food Association

Soil is KEY to Quality Food. Can you dig it?

Is organically grown food more nutritious than food grown conventionally? The debate continues evidenced by the recent study released by Sanford University. Both sides discount the role of soil, the importance of mineralizing, and methods used to measure the nutrient density of food.

About Dan Kittredge
An inquisitive second-generation organic farmer, Dan Kittredge advocates moving beyond organic. He has put together and is popularizing a system for "Bionutrient-Rich Crop Production," often abbreviated as "nutrient-dense farming." Kittredge started his experimenting with nutrient-dense principles on Many Hands Organic Farm in Barre, Massachusetts, where he grew up. Kittredge was spurred to explore the nutrient-dense paradigm after reflecting on the problem of mediocre yields and predictable insect and disease outbreaks on small organic farms. The Bionutient Food Association , bionutrient.org started as a project of The Real Food Campaign realfoodcampaing.org whose mission is to empower and educate farmers towards the production of quality food. BFA now has its own non-profit status and advocates for vital soils and nourishing food nationally. Today, Kittredge farms his own15-acre homestead where he raises grassfed beef, goat, sheep and a full spectrum of vegetables. Practicing what he preaches, he finds it very easy to make good money growing nutrient dense food.
