Science: Natural Farming & Indigenous Solutions

This lesson was presented as in “Intro to Natural Farming” to an audience of experienced petroleum based farmers. It is an overview of the solutions natural farmers use as tools to assist plant and microbial growth. The later part the talk briefly goes into soil biology theory highlighting how crops we are typically trying to grow prefer fungal dominant soils, and reasons for using natural farming to build depth and soil diversity.

Natural Farming Hawai’i is well known for its scientific approach to increasing soil fertility and plant health. We use microscopic analysis to back up and validate all living soil solutions. Our all edible solutions are based on the most cutting edge biological research in soil science. Anybody with access to a 400x powered microscope may validate our theory themselves, and we encourage you to do so.

The following slides and video are an overview of the system presented for an experienced audience. Each solution is detailed in other videos. Aloha!
