Nutrient Dense Foods- Free Lecture with Dan Kittredge

March 9, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Did you know that the iron content of one apple in 1950 is equivalent to twenty-six apples in 1998?

Quality food has flavor, aroma, a long shelf life, and when it rots, it dries out instead of molds. Quality Food is nutritious with health and life giving attributes. These wonderful benefits happen because of healthy soil with an abundance of organic matter, which also serves for increased tolerance to extreme weather, improved yields, and lower disease and insect pressure.

Learn about ‘Quality Food,’ how to get it, and why it is important, with Dan Kittredge of the Bionutrient Food Association. He will discuss raising nutrition standards in our food supply through collaboration with committed farmers, organizations and consumers. You will understand the concept of nutrient-dense food, production that is beneficial to the soil and human health, and how to support growers who are achieving high quality food.
