Instructor - Rob Moutoux

The foundation for all human, animal, and plant health lies in the health of the soil.  For anyone interested in healthy crops and healthy bodies, come learn how the soil's mineral levels and biological activity, the 'digestive capacity' of the soil, affects the nutrition of the foods we eat, and as a result, the health of our bodies. This course will teach participants how to build soils that produce nutrient-dense, high-brix foods, and why they are so important.  Over the next few years, we will see much discussion of nutrient-dense foods- foods that are more mineral-rich, have more phytoalexins (the medicinal compounds in food), taste better, store better, and are naturally more insect and disease resistant.  This workshop is geared for both consumers and gardeners or farmers.  Celebrate Mother's Day with your mother or family learning about real food and real health!

Rob Moutoux is the owner of Moutoux Orchards in Loudoun County, which is committed to low-impact, environmentally friendly, sustainable agriculture.  At Moutoux Orchards organic and biological methods are used to ensure that their trees reach their full genetic potential.
