Steve Solomon writes books on food gardening. He officially “retired” at the age of 44 after selling the mail order seed business he built up with great success in the 1980s. Today he makes his home in Australia where he grows the majority of the food they consume.
Steve considers himself a political libertarian and sees his role in life to be “encouraging others food self sufficiency and better health. He describes his methods and books as “beyond organic” or even as “outside organic”.
Today he joins us to discuss why the quality of our food has been in decline for centuries. The importance of mineral amendments in not just growing a lot of food or good looking food but growing highly nutritious food. Why you should definitely do a soil test on the land you are growing on even if you are getting good or even great production and more.
Steve will even explain why although organic food may be free of many toxins it is often no more nutritionally valuable then conventionaly grown produce. He will even challenge the definition of “heirloom seeds” in a quite convincing manner.
