How-to WCP and March 2017 Potluck

Monthly Natural Farming Hawaii meeting in Hilo at the Sweet Cane Cafe. Every second Tuesday 6-8pm.

This month I talked a lot. About:
Certification structure for CGNF-Hawaii. Master Cho’s official organization incorporated in Hawaii.
Beyond GMO a project to transform the Hawaiian Papaya industry.
Differences between Master Cho and his son Young-san Cho’s solutions.

how to make water soluble calcium phosphate.

burn bones till thoroughly black and charred.
dissolve in vinegar for 7 days.
strain and store liquid.

improper use can severely impair your plants

to use dilute 1:1000 with water and other KNF solutions
uses include:
to enhance the flowering of plants
to support structural features of plant growth

Now that you’ve made all the solutions, how do you combine and use them? This video talks about the subtle ways to assist plant growth and maximize the ability to grow in harmony with nature!

Using the chart here and scaling it up for the correct volume and you are good to go.

Premixing what we call the “Maintenance Solution” of 1 part OHN, 2 parts BRV and 2 parts FPJ, then adding that as a base of 20 mL per gallon, can really simplify the amount of jars you have to open to make a simple mixture.

And here is Master CHO talking on the subject

Scientific Understanding of Indigenous Micro Organisms

Our October 2015 Natural Farming Hawai’i meeting featured James Rushing presenting his University of Hawai’i thesis project on the study of something similar to IMO#4. The results show that to get a full benefit, connecting to the soil and properly using the recommended Soil Treatment Solution may go further to boosting your plant’s performance in trials.

I added my mana’o on how to properly activate your IMO with a simple solution.

2015 Natural Farming Symposium: Day 2

11952719_10156010201360010_6241160174763553853_oHawai’i Farmers Union United – East Hawai’i Chapter organized the 2015 Natural Farming Symposium in Hilo, October 1st-3rd.

Download the PDF of the First Annual Natural Farming Symposium – Program Booklet. This document shows the schedule of speakers and panels that took place during the symposium.

The second day opened up with Vince Mina introducing us to his farm’s method of producing natural farming inputs. A flat spade is invaluable to his operation. Simple tools make natural farming a practical solution for a growing world.

Majority of the Second day was panels. I recorded them audibly and will update this post with them here as the become available.

The day finished up with visible evidence of natural farming improving ‘soil tilth’. This can be measured in many ways, and Dr. Kun Hui Wei uses a variety of methods to quantify the results such as biological nematode populations, soil penetrometer tests, records of harvests and salable yields, and shows the results of several test comparisons of conventional, organic and natural farming in Hawai’i.
