The mission of the Bionutrient Food Association (BFA) is, “Increasing Quality in the Food Supply.”  The BFA is a tax exempt charitable organization.

Today, especially our children, need to consume on average greater than double the amount of Broccoli to get the same amount of Calcium, and greater than triple the amount of Collard Greens to get the same amount of Iron, that we once got from eating those vegetables back in 1975!  The 2011 Nutrient Guide (http://www.bionutrient.org/library/documents) shows the extremely sad state of the quality of the average crop.

Recently, Dan Kittredge, Executive Director of the BFA, was interviewed by the Quaboag Current, a local newspaper, and one can read the article here: http://www.bionutrient.org/news/farmer-stresses-quality-over-quantity

Your presenter is Derek Christianson of Brix Bounty Farm (http://www.brixbounty.com/)

 

Thank you in advance for your help in sharing with others this information on this upcoming wonderful 2-session Workshop on Bionutrient Rich Crop Production and about the BFA!  TOGETHER, We Will Make And Have Better Quality Food!
