The Natural Farming Hawai’i June potluck meeting will be about looking through the microscope to understand the benefits of natural farming down to their smallest detail.
Soil isn’t just a dead medium in which crops grow; it’s a matrix of living things, some beneficial, some harmful. In healthy soil, microorganisms interact in complimentary ways, but pesticides herbicides fertilizers can disrupt that balance. The presentation at the meeting will cover how to use the microscope, how to identify bacteria, fungus, and nematodes, and what all this means for soil health.
The potluck meeting takes place on the second Tuesday of each month–in this case, June 9, June 9th, 2015, at 6-8 p.m at the Komohana Ag Research Center in Hilo, Hawai’i.
