Join us in welcoming Dan Kittredge to Portland for a free Introductory Seminar and potluck supper. This event will be of interest to farmers, gardeners, and anyone else who wants to grow and eat good deeply nutritious food from biologically active, mineral-rich soils.
Dan, lifelong Farmer and Executive Director of the Bionutrient Food Association, will share his understanding and firsthand experiences utilizing a biological approach to crop production. He will also introduce ideas around "limiting factors to genetic potential."
Quality, nutritious food is the goal of this work. For context, consider that, from 1975 to 2010, the average nutritional values of the average crops have steadily declined:
• Broccoli has 54% less calcium,
• Cauliflower & Daikon no longer have measurable Vitamin A,
• Collard Greens have 81% less Iron!
This list goes on, but the trend is reversible. This introductory lecture will be followed by more in-depth workshops later in the fall and winter for those who want to dive deeper into the topic and the techniques.
Cost: Free to attend, but space is limited (so take your RSVP seriously:)
What to Bring: A dish or beverage to share, a notebook, your own potluck kit (bowl/plate/utensils/cup) for a zero waste event.
