Re: Writing opportunity
I am interested to promote and write manual in the use and culture of
beneficial microorganisms and bionutrients use in agriculture. I did a
workshop on the subject at the Ecofarm Conference in Asilomar (Monterey,
California) last January and an in-depth training at Camp Joy Gardens in
Boulder Creek, California. Currently, I have a booklet on the subject.
Let me know if I could be of help in empowering US farmers in this important
Asian technology of culturing beneficial indigenous microorganisms.
