Lundgren has written 126 peer-reviewed journal articles, several book chapters, authored the book “Relationships of Natural Enemies and Non-prey Foods”
This is a really important point, and has been a major focus of this vision refinement. Science is a critical component, but only one component of the full system needed for change. So our interactions and integrating science into the dialogue of change in our food system is a major priority.
Hi Benjamin, This connection between human health and soil health is pivotal as we move forward with a transformation of society around our food systems. Indeed, our field day at Blue Dasher Farm (August 10) will be focused on the human health implications of regenerative agriculture. So yes, we are thinking along the same lines, for sure. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to reach out any time.
We sure do have a website (in the middle of being updated right now). www.ecdysis.bio and www.bluedasher.farm. Our BlueDasherFarm facebook page is a good place to go for updates on our activities and impact. Thanks for the interest!
