Fresh From the Field
The Real Food Campaign is in full swing again and to date we have received over 250 carrot, spinach, kale, lettuce, cherry tomato and grape samples from all across the USA. However, to reach our goal of 3,000 samples in 2019, we need more volunteers willing to mail us samples from their own or neighbors farms, local farmers markets or grocery stores. We have two programs for anyone interested in helping us collect samples... Learn more!
The final report of analysis from the RFC 2018 Survey is now available! Over the course of 5 months last year, we analyzed samples from data partners in 7 states from 50 unique stores and 68 farms/gardeners. To begin, two types of produce were collected, carrots (648 total samples) and spinach (181 total samples), as we began the process of understanding what nutrient variation exists in our food supply, and how we need to calibrate the bionutrient meter so that we can identify that variation. It’s long, but worth a read! We've also uploaded a video walk-through for those who prefer that medium, available here: https://www.youtube.com/user/realfoodcampaign. For an inside look at our process, be sure to check out the other lab and bionutrient metere updates Greg has posted: https://lab.realfoodcampaign.org/author/gba/
If you were unable to attend this year, we want to give you a chance to experience the vibrant energy and insights felt by all who were there. And for those of you that were in attendance, here’s a chance to dive deeper into your notes and revisit all of those key points that tickled your brain!
