“The Secret Life of Plants” Meets “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Biodynamics But Didn’t Know Who to Ask.”
With China and India exporting, the world is awash in food. Yet, too little quality is grown.
Clean food is just a beginning. Organic is the tip of the iceberg. Our challenge is
growing crops with vitality, flavor and nutritional density that are immune to pests
and diseases as well as keeping exceedingly well. It’s cheaper and easier than you think.
Hugh Lovel, founder of Union Agricultural Institute in Blairsville, GA, and author of A Biodynamic Farm, will teach new approaches and techniques to growing better crops using less inputs.
What is quantum agriculture? Hugh’s 30-year quest to grow food of the highest quality led him to apply quantum physics to agriculture. His research has uncovered that less really is more. Crops of the highest quality can be grown as you reduce inputs toward zero by adjusting their environmental patterns of energy. With this approach, their biology thrives and their fertility corrects itself and improves organically.
In this unique presentation, which features on-farm training at Serenbe Farm, you will learn better, cheaper, and easier ways to grow crops that are exceptional in yield, quality, and nutrition. Take this opportunity to expand your growing horizons with this gifted farmer, researcher, author, and teacher at his last presentation before he returns to Australia, where he now lives and works.
