Growing and Eating Nutrient-Rich Crops
Dan Kittredge, lifelong farmer and Executive Director of the Bionutrient Food Association, is offering a two-session workshop on growing nutrient-rich crops on Wednesday, November 13, and Wednesday, March 5, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This lecture is geared to farmers, gardeners and anyone who wants to know how to grow – and eat – good, quality food.
Quality is the focus; from 1975 to 2010, average nutritional values of foods have steadily declined. For example, broccoli has 54% less calcium, cauliflower and daikon no longer have any Vitamin A, and collard greens have 81% less iron.
The fee for both days is $150, with scholarships available for farmers.

The workshops will be held at the One World Conservation Center, located at 413 U.S. Route 7 south, in Bennington, Vt.
