> hello,
> i have been in korea for a year and a half now and am trying to find any
books, websites or other resources of any kind on korean trees of any kind,
particularly fruit and nut trees or edible or medicinal plants. or just
pretty plants. or vegetables.
> i have wondered around just looking at farms but due to a language barrier
and the generally abhorent methods of agriculture i have come across it is
hard to find out what i may be looking at or be too interested. but i am
quite sure there is something interesting or maybe even amazing to be found
> basically i am searching for a place that can give me a starting point to
find out what korea has to offer.  then i want to track down interesting
varieties, good producers, rare plants/cultivars, etc.  i am aware of such
korean anomalies as kimchi and stuff and am looking for a place to get info
on some of the rarer and lesser known korean plants although i think kimchi
tastes good and am very interested in fermentation.
> of equal interest to me are traditional methods of planting, cultivating,
preparing, preserving, etc. although that may be easier found through
observation here.
> my idea is to get some information from outside korea first as a starting
point bc so far everyone here laughs at me when i say i want to be a farmer
or farming is interesting ("don't you want to make money? aren't you from
america? do you work for novartis?") and then as i travel on weekends find
and document what i can in a plant press and identify as much as possible.
then maybe i can collect seeds or propogate (if the school allows a little
nursery on the roof) and send them to someone on here that has some
unplanted ground.
> just a fun project.  any information would be greatly appreciated.
