The Accidental Guest - Jason Winnett is a farmer who was traveling through Point Reyes Station when his car broke down and decided to stop into our radio station while he waited for the repairs. My guest for the day had cancelled and there was this farmer who knew all about an unusual Soil Innoculation technique from Korea. This is a repeat of that show which has been one of my most popular shows. Natural Farming with Indigenous Microorganisms is a method of farming using naturally occurring soil microorganisms which are deliberately collected and cultured. It has been practiced throughout Asia and Korea for centuries. It enhances soil fertility and plant nutrient uptake through the introduction and proliferation of these beneficial soil microbes or mycorrhizae. The originator and founder of Natural Farming, Mr. Han Kyu Cho or Master Cho, has visited Hawaii several times and this practice is taking root, getting attention and support from the county and state as well as from many small scale and commercial farmers.
