Grant received for Nutrition Grown research and teaching garden

Please celebrate with me this new grant for Nutrition Farming for Hawaii™. a project of the North Kohala Community Resource Center.  Working together with the Hawaii Institute for Pacific Agriculture, a research and demonstration garden for Nutrition Grown™ foods is being established.  We will have a large variety of vegetable crops in production and track their nutrient content over time as the soil is improved through the analysis and amending process.  Visitors–from school kids to farmers–will be welcomed to learn from the garden.

I hope you can join with us in whatever way you can, such as by participating in the new online Nutrition Grown™ course, Perfect Soil, Ultimate Food, Vibrant Health and True Success.  Sign up for the updates to receive more info on the course or contact us at info@beyondorganicresearch.com.  We are working on a webpage for it currently.

Blessings,  Dr. Jana

GardenDineLove Interview of Dr. Bogs by Emily Pelligra

BEYOND ORGANIC WITH JANA BOGS

Hi,

Are you ready to explore SOIL? It is the groundwork (figuratively and literally!) of any healthy, hearty garden!!

Our guest is Dr. Jana Bogs, a Colorado State University graduate with a PhD in horticulture and food science, who firmly believes that soil is the foundation to growing nutritionally dense food.

Jana’s passion for optimizing health began when she was a young girl and led her to become a nutritionist. After working in the field for several years, Jana realized that food’s nutritional quality was not what it could be or even what it once was! These insights resulted in her understanding that soil quality needed to be improved to grow better quality foods. Her mission then became “creating health from the soil up”.

Through the ‘Beyond Organic Growing System’ that Dr. Bogs created, a farmer, home gardener, or market gardener can have their soil tested. Following analysis, and with the direction that Dr. Bogs provides, appropriate amendments can be made to then grow plants that will express their full potential with better cell wall integrity and increased nutrient density.

Along with extensive ties to the academic community, Dr. Bogs also stays on the cutting edge by studying techniques from the organic agriculture industry, as well. She provides a terrific explanation of how going ‘beyond organic’ is important because it not only leaves the chemicals behind but results in foods that are increased in nutrition so truly promote health and longevity.
