No-smell, no clean pigs – May 2015

No smell, no flies, no cleaning, no problems pig pens, a.k.a. Inoculated Deep Litter Systems, were the topic of the May 2015 Natural Farming Hawai’i meeting and potluck. For over 5 years over a dozen operations have proven why this is the NRCS best practice for swine waste management plans, because there’s nothing to clean up! All the waste is digested right on the living floor reducing labor and eliminating the need for water.

Indigenous Micro Organisms – March 2015 Meeting

Clean water, clean air, healthy food, it all starts with robust life cycling nutrients in functioning subsoil systems. Indigenous Micro Organisms are the original life that has been working for countless generations to purify our Earth’s surface, and they can do it again, in record speed with our help.

Indigenous Micro Organisms were the topic of the March 2015 Natural Farming Hawai’i Meeting and Potluck. Drake has been intentionally working with IMO since mid 2008 and has combined the knowledge of Master Cho, Gil Carandang and Elaine Ingham along with other cutting edge research in fermentation and beneficial micro organism propagation.
