Heritage Farm employs practices derived from Korean Natural Farming and JADAM to power a regenerative urban farm operation. Join Heritage Farm Manager Adrian Galbraith-Paul and his crew for this hands-on workshop in which participants will learn to prepare various fertilizers and bio-inoculants using on-farm materials (such as plant growing tips and crop residues), as well as common community waste products (such as coffee grounds, wood chips, and waste salmon). 

Preps covered in the course of this workshop will include Fish Amino Acid(Fish Fertilizer), Fermented Plant Juice, Water Soluble Calcium, Water Soluble Calcium Phosphate, Indigenous Micro Organisms, and Vermicomposting.
Speaker Information
Presenter Adrian Galbraith-Paul is the Farm Manager at Heritage Farm, in Philadelphia. Begun in 2011, the farm is 4 acres and consists of vegetables, flowers, berries, mushrooms, medicinal herbs, and an orchard. Equipped with four high tunnels and a greenhouse that greatly extend the growing seasons, Heritage Farm strives to bring care, attention to detail and passion to the treatment of our soil, vegetables, community and customers. Our farming practices are designed to grow the best quality vegetables, seeking inspiration from nature and the small scale organic farming movement. 

Assisted by seasonal staff, long-term volunteers and interns, our farmers grow fresh produce for women and children served by Methodist Services, the surrounding community, and select restaurants throughout the Philadelphia area.
