Hey folks! As I mentioned in my last post I was accepted to speak at the Virginia Association for Biological Farming Conference (full info now available) in January. I am excited but also a bit nervous. After reviewing the speaker list, it looks like I maybe the only one speaking with zero farming experience 😨. (Although our backyard is probably close to qualifying as an urban farm at this point)
While I plan on talking a lot of science and microbiology, Nicky @ Permaculture Gardens who encouraged me to apply, pointed out this audience wants to know how they can use vermicompost or tea on their farm, market garden, or even a ranch. My go to for information is typically scientific journal publications, but this is one area where academic data is scarce.
I was hoping you all could help me out especially if you have customers who might be farmers or market gardeners. Where have your customers seen the most success using vermicompost/tea? How and how often do they normally apply your product? If they have some anecdotal data to back up their success even better!
I would like to provide the audience with various resources to follow up if they decide integrating some kind of vermi-tech with their operation. If you get in touch with me via email (email@example.com) or phone (650 837-6255), and I use some of your advice/data I would of course give your company and customer full credit and list you as a resource in the presentation.
I'll probably reach out directly to you a few of you, but I know there is a lot of expertise out there I'm unaware of.
