Korean Natural Farming Workshop with Aaron Englander

Korean Natural Farming (KNF) is an agricultural method that encourages self-sustaining, closed loop systems through minimizing external inputs.; Developed by Master Han Kyu Cho in South Korea, KNF echoes many of the principles central to Masanobu Fukuoka's Natural Farming technique as well as Permaculture. This all-day, hands-on workshop will focus on both the philosophies and the practices of KNF.; Workshop attendees will learn to make various KNF inputs such as Indigenous Microorganism (IMO) soil inoculant, Fish Amino Acids, Water-soluble Calcium, and Oriental Herbal Nutrient.; KNF is applicable to many types and scales of farming, from backyard veggie gardening to larger scale livestock operations.; Students will walk away from the workshop equipped with the knowledge to implement KNF practices on their own farm or garden.About the instructor: Originally from Concord, MA, Aaron managed a diversified vegetable farm in Oberlin, Ohio for several years. In 2010, he traveled to Hawaii to learn about Korean Natural Farming (KNF).; Aaron gained a thorough understanding of the practices and philosophies of KNF from an intensive workshop led by Master Han Kyu Cho, originator of KNF, and by working on a polyculture fruit farm in Hilo, Hawaii which implements KNF techniques.; Since returning to the Northeast in 2011, Aaron has continued to practice and teach KNF at farms in OH, VT, MA, and ME.; Aaron recently finished a M.S. at the University of Maine where he was researching one of the KNF inputs, the Indigenous microorganism inoculant (IMO) in controlled field and greenhouse trials.Lunch will be potluck style from 12:30 1:30pm.
