Wanted: Volunteer Hilo Gardeners for "The Plan"
Natural Farming: From one person to another
What would happen if we planted taro in our public spaces?
1000 Square Feet of Food
What is The Plan?
Our goal is to help 10 people create ten gardens (10 feet x 10 feet) in Hilo. Each person will receive $100 worth of Korean Natural Farming materials and training (IMO, Biochar, Soil Preparation Solution, 3 hours of instruction from Drake Weinert of Natural FarmingHawaii.net, and 10 taro huli). We want to give 10 people first-hand experience with Korean Natural Farming, feed the soil with IMO and biochar, and feed family and friends in 9 months.
Can you imagine what 100 taro plants would look like in Hilo’s public spaces?
Come see for real!
We are looking for 10 people to do Korean Natural Farming in Hilo’s public spaces. Applications for this round of planting ENDS May 31st 2012.
