Beth Marshall is the author of a newly published book, ‘Grow Yourself Healthy’, a practical guide on how to design and manage edible gardens for nutrition and gut health.
In this talk she will describe the science behind the subject in an accessible way, explaining why growing our own organic produce is the best way to provide food for not only us, but the trillions of microbes we host within us.
Beth will draw on her practical experience to explain how to select a wide diversity of fruit, vegetables, flowers, seeds and herbs for their nutritional value. She will also give guidance on the best growing methods for optimizing the nutritional value of the food we grow, and how best to store and process it, sharing some of the practical crop by crop growing advice from the book, projects and fermentation recipes.
