This group does not have any discussions yet.

I live in Phayao, Northern Thailand and am establishing the Phayao Permaculure Center on 7500 Sq. meters of farmland using Permaculure principles. It is a demonstration garden/farm of permaculture planning and implementation principles.
I am an advocate of rock dust and remineralizing the Earth and use a fine grain sand available here in Northern Thailand from the sand suppliers. I think it is used in finish plastering.as it is fairly fine.
I spread it on my composting in place Permaculture strategy along with rice straw, worms, pig and cow manures. It is my attempt to remineralize the Earth and provide plant nutrients in place where I plant my trees, vegetables, fruits, etc.
Check out "Permaculture" for more about permanent agriculture.
