Growing Nutrient Dense Food Booklet


We are so pleased to work with The Koanga Institute. This Hawkes Bay group are the leaders of historic NZ seeds and are the leaders in the bio-intensive gardening and nutrient dense food realm as they are  practitioners, researchers and teachers in the area. Now we are facing a fast approaching climate change, food security has never been more important so these booklets are great to teach us self-reliance and ecological design.

This booklet is all about why and how you can grow your own nutrient dense food. You will learn what science tells us, including the importance of carbon, phosphate/sugar content, calcium, nitrogen and magnesium. You'll learn how to begin with a refractometer, aeration, moisture, humus, minerals, microbes and seeds. All sounds too intellectual? The book will guide you!

- A5 size booklet
- 100% recyclable, but best to either keep or share with friends
