New Harmony Farm LLC, Greater Newburyport’s local certified organic and bionutrient-dense grower, is hosting a free introductory lecture by Dan Kittredge, executive director of the Bionutrient Food Association on the principles of biological farming and growing nutrient dense food. By balancing soil minerals and nurturing vital soil biology, plants are able to grow into more productive, nutrient-dense and pest-resistant crops. The lecture will be held on September 10, at 7pm at our barn at 186 High Road, Newbury.Dan Green house For those interested in applying these highly successful practices, New Harmony Farm, LLC will be hosting two 1-day workshops on High BioNutrient Dense Crop Production taught by Dan Kittredge and New Harmony's Erin Stack, with the first part of the workshop on Saturday September 27, 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM and the second half of the workshop in early spring of 2015. These workshops inform and support participants in understanding and applying innovative and reliable principles and practices for producing more nutritious food crops in an ecologically sustainable way that lead to healthier lives. The learning focus of the series includes soil biology, mineralogy and energy dynamics. The workshop will begin with an analysis of participants' soil tests, discussion about cover crops, and recommended soil amendments. These are ways to build the health of the soil and stimulate its digestive processes to assure maximum potential for effective crop growth and improved yield in the following spring and summer. Cost for both workshops is $150 (with some partial scholarships available).
