Growing Nutrient Dense Food

$79.99

It’s one of the most magic parts of my teaching: watching the powerful moment when someone “gets” how everything is connected.

By the end of this workshop, you will get how science and the laws of nature are the principles behind high-brix food production.

You’ll understand the links between soil, plant and human health, and why the nutrient levels of most commercially-grown produce have been plummeting since the 1930s.

Upon learning this paradigm-shifting understanding of food, you’ll move to a series of actionable steps for growing wonderful produce at home that fosters your family’s health. Steps like:

  • How to build carbon and humus levels in your soil using techniques such growing carbon crops, ramial wood chips and bio-char.

  • How to balance and raise the mineral levels in our food system by making your own 60:1 high BRIX compost.

  • How to build healthy microbe populations by creating ideal amounts of air, moisture, carbon and minerals in your soil.

Who’s this course for?

  • Every home gardener wanting to grow nutrient-dense food

  • All of us hunting for answers to pest and disease issues

  • Especially those of us who would like to understand how to make principle based decisions

Maybe, your production isn’t where it should be, and you’re ready to learn how to work with nature, rather than against it, to grow incredible vegetables. Or maybe you’re just looking for a simple guide to gardening that won’t lose you in science.

 

Here’s the lesson plan

Part 1 – INTRODUCTION

Episode 1

  • You’ll learn about my story as an organic gardener and what motivated me to start this journey of growing nutrient-dense food.

 

Episode 2 

  • You’ll learn about the life work of Weston A. Price, a key mentor of mine.
  • You’ll get an understanding of the modern science of epigenetics and be empowered to reclaim your health!
  • You’ll learn the importance of using open-pollinated heritage seeds in the process of growing nutrient-dense food.
  • A short introduction to the work of Dr. Reams and A.F Beddoe, crucial mentors that helped me achieve success in my journey.
  • Understanding the basic principles of how healthy cells grow.
  • Know the difference between a Reams soil test and others… and the importance of knowing your soil before starting out.
  • Understanding the importance of balanced mineral ratios in your soil.
  • Learning the vital role phosphate plays in the photosynthesis process.
  • Understanding the concept of “energy release” and how the process of combining and breaking apart energy is at the very essence of life on earth.
  • Learning what BRIX is and why it’s crucial to our success in this journey.

 

 

Part 2 – ACTION PLAN

Step 1 – Learn To Use a Refractometer 

  • Learn how to use a refractometer to get a BRIX, or nutrient density reading.
  • Understand the importance of keeping records and working with trends as opposed to individual readings.

 

Step 2 –Understand Your Soil

  • Learn about the importance of familiarizing yourself with your soil and the several ways you can do this. 

 

Step 3 – Soil Aeration 

  • Understand the importance of  having 50% air in your garden bed soil, and how to create such conditions with a garden spade and fork.

 

 Step 4 – Moisture Levels

  • Understand why appropriate moisture levels are critical, and learn the techniques for getting them right.

 

Step 5 – Raising Your Soil Carbon Levels

  • Understand why high carbon levels are essential for your soil to grow nutrient-dense food, and learn strategies for fostering them in your garden

 

Step 6 – Mineral & Nutrient Levels

  • Get an overview of all the steps we’ve been through so far.
  • Learn the strategies and techniques I use to block leaks and increase mineral and nutrient levels in my vegetables.
  • Learn how composting can be a major part of the process of raising mineral and nutrient levels.
  • Learn about the phosphate cycle and what makes it essential for healthy ecosystems.

 

Step 7 – Microbe Levels

  • Learn the key strategies and techniques for feeding and encouraging microbial growth.

 

Step 8 – Stages of Plant Growth

  • Learn about the different stages of plant growth so you can take action at the optimal time to support the health of your plants.

 

Together, these modules will give you a blueprint for building 

  1. A degree of food security, self-reliance and family health
  2. Peace of mind that your family is eating organic, nutrient-dense vegetables, seeds and grains (major parts of the whole foods diet we all need).
  3. A sense of reconnection and contribution, which extends to everyone involved in growing and harvesting (a major component of mental health).

CLIMATE: Our 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 some case we demonstrate how to apply these rules in temperate and mediterranean climates.
