Arden Andersen Physician, Scientist
Farmer, Farm Consultant leading advocate of Biological Farming
& Nutrient Dense
Dr. Andersen teaches farmers to create soil fertile enough to grow crops with better vitality, more nutrients, fewer chemicals, more disease & pest resistant.
As medical doctor, Arden understands a leading cause of sickness is nutrient-poor food.
As farmer, Arden knows the cure isn’t pills, but full spectrum soil fertility & food nutrition.

Nutrient-Dense Crop Production
Grower Training Workshops for 2010

led by Dan Kittredge
Director, Real Food Campaign

organic farmer since 1984
former Executive Director of Remineralize the Earth
Dan Kittredge has spoken at conferences
and taught workshops across the US

This workshop series is designed to give farmers and gardeners all the information, techniques, tools, and support necessary to produce cutting-edge, maximum quality crops in the Northeast. These workshops draw on cutting-edge research and long-proven techniques to build the ideal soil environment for crop growth and production. This series also takes growers step-by-step through the principles, practices and materials that will optimize crop health and growth.

The essential premise of these workshops is that if all environmental factors are ideal for a growing crop, it will perform to the fullest potential of its DNA. An ideal environment gives plants the resources and opportunity to thrive. Thus, nutrients will be at peak, yields optimum, pests and disease minimal.

We start with soil. Mineral deficiencies will be delineated, with suggested corrections, primarily with rock minerals, with some biological inoculants, bacterial, fungal and soil life food, fish, kelp, humates, and sugar or molasses. We then move to seed inoculation, transplant inoculation, and soil energy monitoring. As the series progresses, plant and soil monitoring, nutrient drenches and foliar sprays will also be detailed.

We will cover numerous details on subjects rarely discussed, such as plant physiology, plant—microbial symbiosis,

timing of growth and fruiting cycles, and how to maximize their effect. Foliar sprays designed to effect leaf or fruit growth will be explained. Resources and practice will be provided.

The entire course follows a daily schedule of half principle, half practice. We meet one day every two months, starting in winter, to detail practices required to maximize biological system vitality for crops in the next two months, and learn the principles behind why these practices make sense.
