Introductory to Natural Farming

November 8, 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Windward Campus, Hale Kuhina 115

This introductory course will cover the basics of Natural Farming techniques with indigenous microorganisms (IMO), a way of farming practiced in more than 30 countries, in home gardens and on a commercial scale. Its basic premise is that farmers can generate most, if not all, of the necessary inputs to otherwise be thrown away, such as egg shells, animal bones, and fish waste. These are mixed with ingredients that can easily be found in any kitchen such as brown sugar, vinegar and rice. Benefits of using the Natural Farming methods include as much ass 60% lower costs to the farmer, more desirable crops, higher yield, better quality, zero waste emission, and stronger plants.
