3D2N Hydroponics Seminar at Cameron Highland

Food Forest Farm (FFF) and Autopot Australia have jointly organized a 3day-2night Hydroponic Seminar from 1st to 3rd of September at Moonriver Lodge, Lojing, Cameron Highlands, Malaysia.

The Seminar consists of 4 technical sessions and 2 farm tours with optional on-site accommodation plus meals. The programme and the costs of the Seminar are provided in the attachment. 

Here is a rare opportunity to listen and witness an ongoing Hydroponic crop production operation at the Food Food Farm. This 5-year old farm is unique and have championed changes to existing farming practices.  FFF adoption of Autopot Technology enables them to produce the best truss tomatoes in Malaysia. The farm is committed to safe food crop growing techniques without the use of chemical pesticides and also engaged in environmentally friendly method of watering and feeding their crops without any run-off  - by gravity. Best of all they are marketing their own produce at a premium - by-passing the stranglehold of the middlemen.

The Seminar includes tours to other hydroponic farms so that the participants can compare different hydroponic systems used in the Cameron Highlands. They get to witness typical farming practices that have been going on for years. Indiscriminate use of pesticides, uncontrolled nutrient run-off into the environment and dumping of spent grow bags in the open spaces are just some examples of bad farming habits currently widely practiced by the farmers.
