This two-part seminar presents a practical and integrated approach for improving human health through improving the health of our soils. Friday evening's talk will emphasize what people can do through diet to improve health. Saturday's full day seminar will illustrate hands-on techniques that farmers and gardeners can employ to realize Hippocrates' directive, "Let food be your medicine."Jerry Brunetti founded Agri-Dynamics in 1979 with a vision to provide farmers with ecologically sound consulting services and holistic animal remedies that yield healthy, regenerative, and profitable outcomes for their operations. In 1999, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and given as little as six months to live without aggressive chemotherapy. He chose a holistic path of nutrition, detoxification and immune modulation and applied his vast experience with farming and animal nutrition to his own health, ultimately healing himself of a life threatening cancer episode. An honorary board member of the Weston A. Price Foundation, he is active in other community based organizations devoted to rebuilding local food systems and local democracy. In 2008, he received the Leadership Award from PASA and the Eco-Agriculture Achievement Award from Acres USA.

He argues the problem isn't really with cholesterol as such: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqCjP-UfOa8&NR=1 Soil Health Saturday focuses entirely on what growers can do for the health of their soils to improve the health of all who eat their produce. This extraordinary collection of 20 youtube videos (each roughly 10 minutes in length) provides an excellent introduction to implementing a soils program that can best support human health. The videos were recorded in Florida at a seminar in October 2009. Find all the videos here: http://www.nofamass.org/seminars/brunettivideos.php
