Mark Belock


About Mark
My interest in natural food, nutrition and healthy eating started in 1982. I have spent many decades accumulating knowledge about health and nutrition, which leads me down the path where I am today. My mission now is to inform and educate people about how critical it is to realize that the soil we grow our crop in will have an impact on the quality of our life and our environment. I am dedicated to work towards regenerating the soil that our food supply grows in. This can be accomplished by educating and increasing the amount of people who have the same goal.
