Drive up to Kittredge Farm in central Massachusetts, and you'll find a restored farmhouse with a post-and-beam porch, long hoop houses growing an abundance of seasonal produce and a farmer feeding a herd of beef cows with the help of his 2-year-old son. It's a classic, pastoral scene of a hardworking farm family. Stay awhile, and you'll notice a few things that are less common of a New England farm -- the mineral depot in the barn, for example, where soil amendments are stacked, pallet after pallet.

Plans have quickly developed for us in Michigan to hold a three day/three city talking/discussion tour focusing on the importance of soil, food and our health. This is an opportunity for consumers and growers to come together and discuss the need for and importance of nutrient dense food and how this affects all facets of our lives on the planet.
