2 Day Workshop on High Bionutrient Crop Production
Saturday, November 7, 2015 is Day 1 of the 2 part workshop
Saturday, January 23, 2016 will be Day 2 of the 2 part workshop.
Dan Kittredge will lead this class to increase the bionutrient level of your soil and crops for greater yields, healthier produce and better marketability for the professional growers. Participation-based with questions and answers, the workshop series is designed for farmers, growers, and gardeners of any type to learn current research and proven methods, and go step-by-step through the processes that will lead to optimum crop health and sustained yield.
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 battery 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. Specific forward-looking topics and themes will be addressed and explored, and a gradual immersion will take place as we reach an increasing depth of understanding about the multi-faceted nature of the biological system of the soil and the interaction that takes place between the soil, the air, the plants and our observations and interventions.
Each session will consist of a classroom-style discussion and hands-on demonstration and practice. Those participants who provide their email will also receive periodic e-newsletters to supplement the workshop presentations. Registrants will be expected to procure their own soil tests as desired, and instruction for interpreting those will be covered during the workshop.
Workshop will be held in Simsbury.
Time: 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Workshop Fee: *$150 for new students, or $125 for returning students for the 2 day session
