Inoculate and Occupy Hilo with Kalo

Applying the CHO soil preparation solution to Downtown Hilo as part of the Grow Hilo project. A few new friends joined in on the action and spontaneously started multiplying microbes with us. Setting the soil foundation is crucial for the plants to grow a vigorous root system in the first few days of life. Watch and see how it’s done.

Egg Yolk Oil (Recipe)

Master Cho told a story of an old Japanese woman giving him this recipe for “All the terrible things the Japanese have done to the Korean people”, and perhaps it has enough mystical power to mend all that hardship. Make some and find out for your self.

Method

  • Cook a dozen egg yolk on medium heat.
  • When they are golden brown and “ready to eat”, turn up the heat to high.
  • Break egg into small particles.
  • Continue heating until oil releases, press oil from egg and remove from heat.
  • Store oil in a jar in the medicine cabinet.

Takes 20~30 minutes of high heat until oil releases. Make sure to have plenty of ventilation.

It’s been known to sprout cooked beans if used properly.

Black Soldier Flies Presentation by Robert Olivier

Robert Olivier, founder of CompostMania.com, gave two presentations at the Natural Farming Hawai’i Monthly Meeting for October. We video recorded both sessions so you can share this valuable information with friends and farmily. You can find out more about Robert on facebook.com/composting and twitter.com/composting

The basic idea is that Black Soldier Flies (BSF) can make up to 1/3 of an animals feed. This is huge in Hawai’i because we can grow the other 2/3 very easily with Natural Farming Methods. Also, we no longer have to bury food waste in the landfill with Robert’s BioPod Technology. Slaughterhouse waste and other agricultural waste streams can be turned directly into nutritious insect protein.

Robert eases the County problem of waste, turns trash into cash for commercial operations, and even has a home sized unit to feed a clutch of chickens in the backyard. Check out both videos and let the grubs go to work for you.
