using indigenous microorganisms and bionutrients to improve productivity and 
increase soil health and crop yield.

whole day workshop, saturday, jan. 31 at: everett and daughters farm
                                                           2111 old san jose 
                                                           soquel, ca. 95073
soquel is in the santa cruz, california area.

for centuries, farmers in india, korea, japan and the philippines have been 
harvesting the indigenous microorganisms (IMO's) found in nature and using 
them to improve soil health and crop yield.  now the techniques have been 
adapted to modern organic farming, and for the first time they are being 
introduced into the united states.  you could be among the first to benefit 
from the ongoing transfer of knowledge.

gil carandang, a farmer, environmental activist, and specialist in IMO 
techniques from the philippines will begin the whole day workshop with a 
discussion of the basic theory of IMO.  a hands-on session will then 
demonstrate how to collect and grow your own indigenous microorganisms and 
bionutrients from natural sources on and around your farm, and how to apply 
them to increase yields and reduce problems on your farm.

the workshop is a follow-up to mr. carandang's highly popular seminars at 
the ecofarm conference last year and this year.  it will focus on practical, 
low cost applications of IMO in growing vegetables, flowers, herbs, orchard 
fruits, livestock and even aquaculture.

gil will demonstrate how to collect microorganisms that already exist in the 
woodlands, streams and wild areas near your farms, and how to steep and 
ferment them to produce a soil enhacement and/or foliar spray that will 
build healthier soil, generate stronger plant growth and productivity, and 
reduce dependence on chemical fertilizers or pesticides.  fermentation 
demonstrations will include the use of plant, animal and mineral substrates 
and the microbes that grow upon them.  included will be cultures of lacto 
bacilli, forest beneficial microbes, plant specific microbes, rhizobium 
nitrogen fixing bacteria, bionutrients, fish amino acids, calcium phosphate 
extracts, plant fermented extracts, ginger garlic extract, designer compost 
(bokashi) and more.  all these substances can be used on your farm, ranch or 
vineyard without the purchase of any products other than simple bases like 
rice, molasses and alcohol.  a workbook will be provided.  a wed search for 
"indigenous microorganisms" will also yield more information on IMO's.
