COVID-19 Update: We decided to postpone this event to the fall.  Our new date is still to be determined, tentaively Sunday, October 11th, thanks for your patience.

Are you looking to learn more about Korean Natural Farming amendments and start making your own?  Join us as we learn from Benjamin Morgan-Dillon how to use locally-sourced plants and fruits to create amendments and supplements that are tailored to our geographic environment. Korean Natural Farming retrains our focus from looking at what the plant needs now to anticipating what the plant is going to need in the coming weeks.  Using Korean Natural Farming techniques we will: 

  • Harvest plants from the farm and learn to look for indicators of plant health.
  • Learn how to capture indigenous bacteria, fungi, and microarthropods. 
  • Learn how to culture beneficial microorganisms and create the beginnings of super microbially infused compost.
  • Practice making amendments and leave with Fermented Plant Juice, Fermented Fruit Juice, Water Soluble Calcium and Water Soluble Phosphorus. 
  • Learn how to use various forms of indigenous microorganisms to inoculate our soils and plants with the best of the best for this environment. 

Attendees should plan to bring a large knife for chopping plants. The additional $15 materials fee will cover the cost of containers for the amendments and supplies for you to take home.

Workshop space is limited to 20 people. Please register ahead of time to secure your space!

*Lunch for this event is potluck-style. Participants are expected to bring a food item to contribute, their own utensils and a list of ingredients to accommodate those with food sensitivities.
