Dan Kittredge, organic farmer and founder of the Bionutrient Food Association, is committed to increasing quality in the food supply by educating, organizing, and empowering producers, consumers and food purveyors to make decisions based on nutritional value.
Dan’s signature course, “Principles of Biological Systems,” is designed for all participants in the food system community—experienced farmers, ranchers and gardeners, as well as nutritionists, students, researchers, chefs, and advocates—to learn current research and proven methods for producing healthier, better tasting food crops.
The course goes step-by-step through biological agriculture processes that lead to optimum crop health and sustained yield, and covers the following topics:
