About Winchester
map
Winchester Massachusetts is a thriving residential community that is noted for its fine public school system along with its beautiful homes and easy access to Boston.

The late 1800's saw the development of Winchester as an affluent suburban community. Wealthy businessmen moved out of Boston to "the country"ť and built large and opulent homes. The town's character is still reflected in these beautiful houses built just before and after the turn of the century.

The village atmosphere remains and is fueled by the unusual civic spirit of Winchester's residents. The citizens of the town take an intensive interest in the management of its affairs and in its continued improvement and beautification.

From the Dirt To the Dish

Please join us for a cocktail hour and sit-down dinner to benefit Gardens for Health's work making growing and eating healthy food a part of healthcare. Dinner is $120 per plate.

Before Dinner, Gardens for Health International is pleased to present "The Honest Dirt on Soil: A Panel on the Impact of Healthy Soil on Food, Nutrition, the Environment and Carbon Sequestration". This panel, from 4:30-6:30pm will bring together practitioners and academics to discuss their work building soil for a healthy future. The panel is free and open to the public and will be followed by cocktails and a sit down dinner to benefit Gardens for Health International.

Feeding a growing global population is an increasing challenge.  As our planet careens towards a human population of over 9 billion in just a few decades, we also face the enormous challenge of reversing global warming through reduced carbon emissions and other means.  Rarely reported in the popular press and little understood by the general public, there is a common thread that ties these two critical issues together.  Soil. Soil plays a central role in building the nutrient value of the food we eat and, at the same time, soil stores more carbon than the atmosphere and above ground vegetation.  In short, healthy biologically rich soil grows more food and sequesters more carbon than sterile, depleted soils.

The panel discussion will feature the following practitioners, academics and thought leaders in the field:

Dan Kittredge is a life-long farmer and founder of the Bionutrient Food Association, which empowers and educates farmers in the production of quality food for the improvement of human health.  He is a leading proponent of nutrient dense crop production and is a frequent lecturer on soil, soil biology and micronutrients and the connection between soil health and nutritious foods.

Judith D. Schwartz is a journalist and author whose work looks at soil as a hub for multiple environmental, economic and social challenges—and solutions. She has reported on this theme for such publications as Scientific American, Conservation, Time, Christian Science Monitor andYaleE360, and is currently writing a book on the global water plight from the perspective of land health/land degradation. She has degrees from Brown University, the Columbia University School of Journalism, and Northwestern (MA Counseling.) Her most recent book is Cows Save the Planet and Other Improbable Ways of Restoring Soil to Heal the Earth (Chelsea Green Publishing, 2013).

Conner Wear is Agricultural Technical Manager at Gardens for Health International, based in Rwanda.  He is the principle architect of Gardens for Health’s nutrition-focused approach to home garden design, and serves on the Rwandan Ministry of Agriculture’s Technical Working Groups on Soil Science and Agriculture Extension. He was recently appointed team leader for a research project coordinated by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, the Humid Tropics project and Bioversity International, focused on the provisioning of iron fortified beans and vitamin A rich bananas for improved nutrition.

Max Wall is a graduate student at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition in their Food, Agriculture and Environment program studying soil science.  As an Intern this summer at Wright-Locke Farm, Max is conducting a studying the impact of mycorrhizal fungi on water phosphorus uptake in potatoes.

The panel will be moderated by Tim Griffin, Associate Professor, Friedman School of Nutrition Science at Tufts University where he heads the Agriculture, Food and Environment program.  He holds a Ph.D in Crop and Soil Science and his primary interests are the intersection of agriculture and the environment and the development and implementation of sustainable production systems.
