Borrowing heavily from Korean Natural Farming and the work of Dr. Elaine Ingham, participants in this course will get their hands dirty as they create various compost teas, innoculants, and foliar sprays. Workshop participants can expect to learn how to make and apply Korean Natural Farming inputs such as Indigenous Microorganism (compost based soil inoculant); Fermented Plant Juice (plant nutrient spray); Fermented Fish Amino Acid (fish emulsion); and others. In short, we are creating probiotic kimchi or sauerkraut – for the soil!
