• Our Crops
    Yield, Vigor and Flavor
    are determined by
    soil vitality.

    Our Crops

    Soil is a biological system, and addressing limiting factors in air, water, carbon, minerals and biology systemically empowers crops.


  • Our Health
    Is affected by the quality
    of the food we put in
    our bodies.

    Our Health

    Nutritive levels in crops have been dropping for decades. Degenerative diseases are becoming epidemic. Understand quality and find the best for your family.


  • Quality of Food
    Can be understood
    and identified.

    Quality of Food

    Our work is in helping to increase Bionutrient levels in the food supply. Join us in identifying what quality is available where in your area.

Biochar Workshop: October 17-18

Don't miss this two-day seminar at Dan Kittredge's farm in North Brookfield, MA focusing on the art, science, and practical application of biochar, led by Gary Gilmore, a Pennsylvania State Forester who has been working with and refining methods of biochar production for decades. Gary will be doing at least two burns as demonstration, and everyone who attends the workshop will walk away with a wealth of in-depth information and knowledge about the benefits of biochar — what it is, how it is made, how it is applied, and the excitement that comes from making and using it.
