HOW TO GROW NUTRIENT DENSE FOOD

The Garden Series w/ Owen Goltz
Dates to be announced for Fall 2019
This is a super empowering and exciting offering — it’s both full of theory and hands-on practical. Owen is committed to inspiring and supporting regenerative land uses on his farm and in his community of Inglewood through education. This workshop will focus on creating an upward spiral in soil health. Everybody can grow food, but not everyone knows how to grow super nutrient dense food! Who should take this course? Anyone growing food for themselves or others – at any scale, or anyone concerned about the lack of nutrition in our food supply! You will learn about:

* The relationships between photosynthesis, soil microbes and soil nutrients.
* Re-mineralizing soils and using biostimulators.
* Do’s and Don’ts of tillage.
* Doing it all via compost heap.

Remember, it’s all about It’s about Healthy SOILS, Healthy PLANTS, Healthy PEOPLE! Email us at info@riverdalefarmandforest.ca to RSVP if you plan to attend!
