Introductory Talk with Dan Kittredge
Monday, October 16, 2017, 6:30-8:00pm
@ Christy Webber Farm & Garden, 2834 W. Grand Ave., Chicago IL

Want to learn how to grow better quality crops?  What is quality?  Want crops with better taste, shelf-life, with disease & insect resistance?

The last century of farming practices has taught us that forcing out the most produce possible at any cost has a long term drawback – decrease soil and crop quality. Today, our fruits and vegetables have only a fraction of the nutrients they had even 100 years ago, and without these essential nutrients, our health is inevitably impacted, and chronic illnesses continue to rise...

Join us for an evening discussion with Dan Kittredge, Founder and Executive Director of the Bionutrient Food Association, about how we can return nutrient dense food, or food with high levels of bionutrients, to our markets, gardens, and farms.
