LIVING SOILS: Understanding Biology, Chemistry and Subtle Energies for Production of Nutrient Dense Foodss

Sunday, June 29 - Instructor: Harry MacCormack

This class will be held at Nana Cardoon in Forest Grove

Harry's grasp of the complexities of these topics were first unveiled in his classic book The Transition Document: Toward a Biologically Resilient Agriculture (4th edition (2010) which contains several chapters relevant to this workshop.

This workshop covers in 4 hours what it takes sometimes days to cover in other Soil Food Web oriented workshops. The material is essential to understanding how and why the dominant NPK paradigm and synthetic chemical practices work against a durable agricultural future. The microherd is our ally as we move away from inexpensive petroleum inputs. Cutting edge information is unique and guides informed organic and biodynamic practices. Soil tests showing the success of these techniques will be shared. Harry continues to promote what is still considered too controversial by those who embrace the conventional, even as that thinking is practiced in much of organic agriculture.

BEAN, GRAIN & EDIBLE SEEDS: Homestead Scale

Sunday, July 13 - Instructor: Harry MacCormack

This class will be held at Nana Cardoon in Forest Grove

Harry has been working with grains, beans, and seeds on a homestead scale for 40 years. During the past 7 years the research plots at Sunbow Farm have been a large part of the drive to create the Southern Willamette Valley Bean and Grain Project. Some of the plot plantings have included black, pinto, soy, lentil, red and garbanzo beans, over-wintering peas, 3 rye varieties, 2 triticale varieties, 4 wheat varieties, 2 varieties of quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat and sunflower and will all be demonstrated during this workshop.
