Growing Nutrient Dense Food


The “growing nutrient dense food” workshop is an inspirational and paradigm shifting workshop.

This workshop will take you on a journey through some of the “laws of nature” and the “principles of science” around food production, which in turn will reveal the missing links between healthy communities and healthy ecosystems. It will take you on a journey from the microcosm to the macrocosm on many levels. 

This workshop demonstrates a nutritionally sound and ecologically resilient approach to food security!

It is a beautiful thing when we really “get”  how everything is connected and we start taking action towards regeneration with an actual understanding of the principles behind our decisions. 

This becomes a powerful step towards not only growing nutrient dense food but also restoring the health of your immediate surroundings, your self, your family, your local community and the earth. 

This workshop will give you an understanding of what nutrient dense food is and why you need it for optimum health. 

This workshop will also give you a step by step process showing you how to grow nutrient dense food based on the principles leaned in the first part of the workshop.

This course comes with a large database of videos tutorials and information, including step by step videos for how to make bio-char, fish fertiliser and worm farms. It also comes with a comprehensive chart of trees and plants and which minerals they accumulate. It comes with a visual soil assessment guide for how to understand your soil.

Who is this course for?


This workshop is to help people understand what nutrient dense food actually is and how to grow it and why we ned it for optimum health.

This course is specifically for people who are interested in health, gardening, the laws of nature and how they relate to human health and anyone who wants to understand food production on a deeper, regenerative level. 

This workshop is also a great introduction to the science of how plants grow. 

This course is for all levels of home gardeners, both country and urban. 

CLIMATE: The workshops are based around giving people an understanding of the principals of science and the laws of nature which can be applied in varying ways to any climate. In our videos we are specifically showing people how to apply these rules in a temperate climate.

  • Start the Permaculture Design Process created by Kay to Grow Nutrient-Dense Food.
  • Learn how to use a Refractometer to get a BRIX reading.
  • Understand the importance of keeping records, and working with trends as opposed to individual readings.


Step 2 – Soil

  • Learn about the importance of familiarizing yourself with your soil through the Visual Soil Assessment process and soils tests if possible.


Step 3 – Aeration Levels

  • Understand the importance of aerating your garden beds, which most home gardeners can do with a garden spade and fork.


Step 4 – Moisture Levels

  • Understand why it is critical to have appropriate moisture levels and learn about all the strategies and techniques we use to achieve that.


Step 5 – Carbon Levels

  • Understand why having high levels Carbon in your soil is essential to grow Nutrient-Dense Food and learn about the strategies and techniques we use to achieve that.


Step 6 – Mineral & Nutrient Levels

  • Get an overview of all the steps we’ve been through so far.
  • Learn about several different strategies and techniques used by Kay to block leaks in order to keep cycling the minerals and nutrients within her house site.
  • Learn about how composting can be a major part of this process of cycling and raising mineral and nutrient levels.
  • Learn about the phosphate cycle and and why it is essential to healthy ecosystems


Step 7 – Microbe Levels

  • Learn about several different strategies and techniques used by Kay to feed and encourage microbial populations to grow.


Step 8 – Stages of Plant Growth

  • Learn about all the different stages of plant growth so that you can make better decisions and support your plants to be Nutrient Dense.
