In the Fall of 2009 I visited South Korea with my son Drake and a small group of agricultural enthusiasts from the Big Island. The tour was organized by Dr. Hoon Park. We were honored to spend a week with Master Cho, the founder of Korean Natural Farming.
I spent 2010 in my gardens at my home trying to learn and apply some of the Korean Natural Farming methods. I have not used any fertilizers, but instead have concentrated on applying IMO to the soil and learning how to compost, grow worms and make the natural inputs used as plant sprays like, water soluble calcium, fish amino acid, lactic acid, oriental herbal nutrient, fermented plant juice and fermented fruit juices. All of these inputs can be made from the resources right in your garden essentially at no cost and produce amazing results in fruits and vegetables.
