Calling Local Farmers, Gardeners and Growers

High-Bionutrient Crop Production Workshop

Friday, Feb. 7 and Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014

Madison, Virginia

Hosted by SoilSHARE (Soil – Soil Health Assists Rural Economies)

Growing Nutrient-Dense Food Is the “Next Big Thing” in the Food Movement

We’re fortunate that Dan Kittredge, a second-generation organic farmer and nutrient-rich food grower, is coming to Madison to teach an intensive two-day workshop on biological farming (click the image on the left to download the flyer). You’ll learn how to test and analyze your soils so you can apply the right mix of nutrients to build your soil up to peak vitality. Dan will share how he saves time and money to grow the high-quality food that his customers have grown to appreciate and have made his business a success.

This is a rare opportunity to learn biological farming from a successful commercial grower. Go to http://bionutrient.org/workshops to register, click the“Sign Up Online” button near the bottom of the page and select the “Madison, VA”class location. The fee is $150.00 for the two days with scholarships available for farmers (contact gary@bionutrient.org to apply).
