Conference Speakers

The Soil & Nutrition Conference will engage farmers, researchers, nutritionists and food system advocates for a multidisciplinary conversation exploring the potential to improve food quality through regenerative agriculture that builds soil, crop and ecosystem health. We bring together some of the leading thinkers and practitioners outstanding in their fields to share with you their insights and personal experience, so that we can continue to grow the movement to increase quality in the food supply! Below are a few of this year's featured speakers, with more profiles to come soon!

Keynote Speaker



Dan Kittredge

Bionutrient Food Association
Founder & Executive Director

Perhaps you are already familiar with Dan through one of his workshops about the principles and practices of biological farming and growing bionutrient-rich crops, at the core of which is the connection between soil health and human health and environmental health. If so, you've likely heard him speak about the vision for a handheld device that a consumer could use to point at a tomato, for example, or a bunch of carrots, and push a button to get a read on it's relative nutritive quality. To say such a device has the potential to be a game-changer is not an understatement. Dan will be presenting on the exciting progress made on the prototype tool, the Bionutrient Meter, defining food quality via the Real Food Campaign, and our movement strategy to increase quality in the food supply.
