    Natural Farming Workshop - Thu, June 27 from 2 - 5pm

    Erickson Fields Preserve
    164 West St (Rt 90), Rockport, ME

    Join us for the first Farmer/Gardener workshop of the 2019 season. Like spring, we have been a little slow to get started this year!

    This program fills up every year so don't hesitate!

    Erickson Fields Farm Manager, Aaron
    Englander, will lead a free, hands-on Natural Farming Workshop  Learn new farming techniques including making natural fertilizers.

    Englander will demonstrate Korean Natural Farming (KNF), 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 three hour, hands-on workshop will present practices of KNF and adaptations to the Northeast US through live demos of various Natural Farming bio-fertilizers and nutrients. Workshop attendees will learn to make KNF inputs. KNF is applicable to many types and scales of farming, from backyard veggie gardening to large scale livestock operations. The goal of the workshop is for attendees to leave equipped with the knowledge to implement KNF practices on their own farm or garden.

    Wear work clothes and closed-toe shoes and bring a notepad/pen, water, a snack and work gloves.
