After decades of purely profit driven agriculture, we need to turn our attention to nutrient density and the benefits of a wide variety of vegetables in our diets. With a steady decline over the last century of more than 20% of the vitamins and minerals in our soil and the loss of the soil itself, it is becoming obvious that this is playing a major role not only in our health but in our planet’s health.
To grow produce with its full potential of nutrition calls for re-mineralization of the soil and farming methods that nurture and allow the microbiome to thrive.
Come visit the garden and watch it evolve as we learn how to increase the nutrient density of our food and grow top soil. See a demo of a simple tool that you can use to assess the quality of your produce and take home some veggies!
