Korean Natural Farming, May 3rd, 9:30am - 4:30pm - Rutland, MA
A NOFA/MA event - Korean Natural Farming (KNF) is an agricultural method that encourages self-sustaining, closed loop systems through minimizing external inputs. Developed by Master Han Kyu Cho in South Korea, KNF echoes many of the principles central to Masanobu Fukuoka's Natural Farming technique as well as Permaculture. This all-day, hands-on workshop will focus on both the philosophies and the practices of KNF. Workshop attendees will learn to make various KNF inputs such as Indigenous Microorganism (IMO) soil inoculant, Fish Amino Acids, Water-soluble Calcium, and Oriental Herbal Nutrient. KNF is applicable to many types and scales of farming, from backyard veggie gardening to larger scale livestock operations. Students will walk away from the workshop equipped with the knowledge to implement KNF practices on their own farm or garden.
