A bit out of the loop

Recently, what with small son, full time job and project work, I’ve not been updating my blog as much as I used to. I apologize to my readers/subscribers for this. I think there comes a time when you have to put your ideas into practice and not just write about what you are going to do. I am presently doing this, which adds a little flesh to the project work mentioned in the introductory sentence.

I have acquired the use of a roof in the Guro region of Seoul. I am presently trying to find where to get the stuff to put on it, not an easy task when your Korean is not that great and the ideas/concepts are pretty complex. Needless to say, though I have just embarked on saying it, it is something of an uphill struggle.

Please continue to watch this space and in the future I hope to bring you videos, showing how I put this all together.

Stay happy, stay well, stay involved..

Ian

    Thanks for this blog ian. Have learned much valuable info on Korean Natural Farming. Am here in New Zealand and pretty fortunate to have an abundance of materials to culture and use. However, just wondering what minerals a-e are? Can you shed some light on these?
    Thanks

      Hi George,

      I wish I could, but mineral A-E are, I believe, purchased from Janong, so what they are is not listed in the book. I’d be surprised if one of them was not elvan however.

      Sincerely

      Ian

    Hi Ian,
    Are you on twitter? I’d like to follow your progress. I also have a Korean friend who’s been in Germany for the last 10 years and has reluctantly returned to Korea. She currently has a short term contract at the Forestry Institute in Seoul comparing German and Korean Forestry practices or sth similar. However, she does speak a bit of English. Maybe she could help you??
    best wishes from the Black Forest.

      Hi Bert,

      Thanks for the offer of an introduction. Quite frankly I could do with all the help I can get from someone with fluent Korean. I essentially cant get the permits and such to do half of what I want to do without Korean assistance and my wife is entirely uninterested in what I am trying to do. 😦

      Sincerely

      Ian

        Hi Ian,Her name is Somi Oh.  Her mail is wald12@gmx.de.  She commutes 2.5 hours by train or maybe it's the subway to Seoul each morning and then works from 9 to 6. If she can help you, she will or she may know someone who can.  Her English is weak but if you speak i.e. write  clearly, I think she will understand.  I don't know her phone number because she wrote that she had  bought a new smart phone and is still learning how to use it. best wishesbertPS. My favorite garden forum is  gardenweb.com.
