|The Fort Collins Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) serves the Fort Collins and Loveland areas in Northern Colorado. Our local chapter offers you: a local resource directory to help you connect with locally-raised, nutrient-dense foods, a community of like-minded people with social events and shared experiences, and educational experiences and information on traditional, nutrient-dense diets. Thanks for visiting here!|
The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price.
Dr. Price's research demonstrated that humans achieve excellent physical form and health generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.
The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism.
We're Glad You Found Us - let us know how we can help!
Next Chapter Meeting Tuesday, April 5, 2016:
"Gardening for Nutrient Dense Food"
by Greg Michaud
Spring Has Sprung - time to get inspired and get back to the soil!
When: Tuesday, April 5, 2016, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Where: Summitview Community Church Fellowship Room, 1601 W. Drake Rd, Fort Collins (map).
Park on south side of building, enter up the big ramp, and the Fellowship Room is just to the left of the bathrooms.
What: Greg Michaud is an enthusiastic long-time Wapper as well as a backyard chicken and garden expert, regularly presenting workshops on these topics for the Sustainable Living Association. He and his wife Patti run The Old Feed Store in Laporte and are the only local source of the Green Pastures product line of cod liver oil, coconut oil, and more.
In this presentation he will talk about how to garden so that your vegetables and fruits will be truly nutrient dense. After all, why go to all the work and trouble to raise your own crops if they're not nourishing? The good news is that nutrient dense crops are also more resistant to disease and pests AND they taste fantastic, so your efforts will be rewarded in more than one way.
Greg will also talk about some of the differences between conventional, organic, beyond organic, and biodynamic gardening, and which approaches favor nutrient density. Even if you don't have time or space for a garden of your own, you will learn a ton and will be a better judge of produce from other sources. Greg will have a small selection of his favorite gardening books on hand for sale and as always, there will be something interesting to eat.
We will be setting up and breaking down before and after the meeting. We need a couple of people to come early at 6:45 to help set up. Please let us know if you can come early. Thanks!
