Mini Spiral Garden

The 3rd Pinoy Herbal Festival will be held at the AANI Herbal Center this coming November 19 to 21. The 3 day event will feature a lineup of free seminars about herbs and health and also herb propagation. I was invited to talk about herb propagation and how to start a small herb garden.

I am not a fan of power point presentations, during my lectures, I usually bring an actual product or machine to show my audience instead of a picture from my computer. Sometimes I show them pictures only because I can't bring the farm to them.

With my upcoming lecture, I decided to make a small garden that I can bring during the event.

Here's how I made my mini spiral garden:

All it needs now are the herbs. Come and see the finished product on November 21, 9:00 a.m. at the AANI Herbal Garden, Quezon Memorial Circle.

Latest Project: Vortex Brewer

It's been a while since we posted something here.

For those who read the whole blog or those who know me, I'm sure you're all aware that we make Compost Tea Brewers. We've been using them for more than 4 years now and so far, we've never seen a better local version of a compost/vermi tea brewer... until now!

For the past 2 years I've been thinking of making a Vortex Brewer. I've seen pictures and videos of this all over the internet. Only this Monday I decided building one. It was a bit easier to build than I expected as long as you have the right tools.

Enough of the intro, here it is:

I will be posting more pics soon. I will also post a video of the actual brewing action.

Busy as a BEE!

I'm very sorry for not posting any updates on our blog. I would like to announce that we're still very very active and still very much into organic farming. In fact, I think this time is the busiest we've ever been since we started the farm several years ago.

To make it up with you guys, we will be conducting FREE seminars and forums about organic farming. We will be doing this every first Saturday of the month. We will be teaching how to make organic fertilizers like fermented fruit extracts, fish amino acids, lactic acid bacteria, vermitea, and more. We will also be inviting friends who will share their technologies to us.

The venue will be at the AANI Herbal Center, inside Quezon Memorial Circle. For instructions on how to get there, call, 4972755. We will start at around 8am and finish at 12 noon.
