Growing and Preparing Nutrient-Dense Food for Better Health and Resilient Communities Workshop
Sunday, July 22, 2018
9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Learn how to grow and prepare the finest bionutrient-rich food from seed, to soil, to serving plate. Bionutrient Food Association Southeast Ohio Chapter leader Mark Cohen will take a practical look at an innovative food philosophy for improving health, sequestering carbon, and increasing resiliency. Attendees will learn what crop varieties to focus on, how to develop healthy, mineralized, and biologically active soil, and how to prepare their food with techniques such as nixtamalization and fermentation to maximize potential nutrient availability. This workshop emphasizes community food security, but applies to cash crops as well. After exploring food production techniques, Mark will conclude with a demonstration of food preparation and a delicious farm lunch featuring crops from the fields viewed throughout the day.
