Principles of Biological Systems - CANCELLED

March 16, 2024 Midnight to March 17, 2024 Midnight

Berkshire Botanical Garden

In this two-day course on Saturday and Sunday, March 16 and 17, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Dan Kittredge will provide an overview of the principles and practices of biological farming. Our goal is to build upon your knowledge and experience to find ways to increase the health of your soil and crops for greater yields, healthier produce and better marketability. Participation-based with questions and answers, the workshop is designed for farmers, growers, and gardeners of any type. Participants will grasp and apply innovative, reliable principles and practices for producing healthier, better-tasting food crops. We will follow with a number of topics and themes related to helping plants achieve their full genetic potential through management of the environmental factors of soil, air, water, minerals and biodiversity. 

Dan Kittredge is the Executive Director of the Bionutrient Food Association (BFA), a son of prominent leaders in the organic movement, and has been an organic farmer since childhood. Dan is passionate about raising the quality of nutrition in our food supply through collaboration with committed individuals, businesses, and organizations that support the value of people growing and eating really good food.
