Finally! Phase 1 of the demo farm is complete! We prepared just about a 2.5 hectares of land and the land waits for our seedlings. We're late by a few weeks but finished nonetheless. Lined up for our first season of veggies include chillies, tomatoes, eggplant, capsicums, french beans, beets, japanese cucumber and kale. One step closer to a functioning demo farm. In our current layout, we demonstrate monocropping i.e. 1.4 ha dedicated to Taiwanese chillies and a multi-croppin
