Pathways to Regeneration: Soil, Food, and Plant Medicine
November 1, 2019 - November 3, 2019
Nearly twenty activists and researchers will examine regeneration through the lenses of various disciplines. The weekend will include practical and inspirational workshops in growing mushrooms, preparing healthy and affordable food, and making plant-based medicine. Attendees will have the opportunity to revisit the wisdom of indigenous cultures and their use of healing plants, learn about the rising medical cannabis industry, discover the potential of whole foods to alter the course of chronic disease, and work with nature to nurture the web of life in our soils and waterways. Our speakers will share current research in these fields and introduce participants to tangible ways to restore physical, cognitive, and spiritual health to our families and communities.
Three events are of special interest. Friday, November 1 will showcase a panel discussion of the past, present, and future of cannabis as medicine (7:00 p.m., Antioch Midwest, free and open to the public). Dan Kittredge, organic farmer and Executive Director of the Bionutrient Association, will present the keynote address describing the depletion of critical minerals in our soil and the effects on human physiology. The World House Choir will perform prior to his address (Saturday 7:00 p.m., Foundry Theater, Antioch College, ticket included with full conference registration or $30 for single event ticket). Finally, Dr. Stephen Phinney MD, PhD, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Virta Health, will discuss his organization’s clinically-proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse type 2 diabetes without medications or surgery (Sunday 9:00 a.m., Rm. 113 McGregor Hall, Antioch College, 1 Morgan, free and open to the public).
The Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions is a non-profit based in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Since its founding in 1940, its annual conferences have addressed peak oil, climate change and increasing inequity. In 2017 Community Solutions purchased a 128-acre farm and established Agraria Center for Regenerative Practice. Community Solutions’ recent conferences have focused on regeneration of the soil and local food systems. Hundreds of participants have gathered to learn, share, and network at these events.
