Meriu's and Kalio's organic farm - Suggestions and assistance by Dr. Amy Eisenberg

An organic pesticide and herbicide free farm. Dr. Amy Eisenberg has visited this site on a few occasions to give information on composting of organic matter. There has also been dialogue on the principals of crop rotation and the use of nitrogen fixing methods to help improve production and quality.
