About this event
This Basic course is a part of Shumei Natural Agriculture learning programme, which consists of Basic course and Advanced course.
Because of the Covid-19 situation, we would like to hold small sized sessions of the Basic Course. Please bring your mask.
This is aimed at farmers/growers and students who wish to try growing food naturally without applying any chemicals, fertilisers and animal manures.
