Thanks to all the people who attended the June 14 Soil Conference in Chimacum. Great people excited about soil! Most of them are, or have been, farmers. Michael and Ashley put together a delicious lunch and eating and chatting lasted till 12:30. We brainstormed a list of topics to consider. Biochar got the most air time and most topics were only briefly discussed. Some people had to leave early.
Hi. I'm Michael Pilarski and I was touring around the Kaua`i and Hawai`i islands in April and May, 2018, looking at agroforestry systems. In this video, I'm going to show you what agroforestry systems look like; what characterizes them. I'm thrilled that I get to do it with my good friend Paul Massey who is the manager and steward of the splendid Kaua`i Food Forest.
