The High Bionutrient Crop Production workshops are designed to inform and support participants to grasp and apply innovative and reliable principles and practices for producing more nutritious food crops that lead to healthier lives. The learning focus of the series includes soil biology, mineralogy and energy dynamics. At the same time, we intend to establish a relational infrastructure among growers that will provide the basis for increasing collaboration between them, and also with the businesses and organizations that supply their needs and buy their products. Each session consists 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.
