Bionutrient rich crop production is an environmentally sustainable approach  that works to balance the soil so that the crops growing in it produce all the necessary phytonutrients, anti-oxidants, enzymes and biologically available mineral compounds that humans and animals need in their bodies.

With this approach, the vitality and energy of the soil and the plants are enhanced to produce healthier crops, greater yields, extended seasons and longer shelf life.

This method virtually eliminates the use of herbicides and pesticides that are typically used in "modern" agriculture today.  Common factors like insects, disease and weeds are incompatible with more nutrient rich soil and the complex compounds and carbohydrates developed in the plants, so these chronic problems diminish and can eventually disappear.

Win - Win    Improving the Bottom Line
This workshop will show you how Bionutrient rich crop production can improve the profitability of local farming while significantly increasing the nutritional value of vegetables / foods.

Whether you are interested in Sustainable Agriculture on a global scale or want to improve the quality of the food you grow in your home garden - this workshop is for you!

Dan Kittredge says, “The approach that I teach in my courses helps to integrate scientific principles in simple, common sense ways that empower growers to significantly improve their crops. 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.”
