Organic Farm in Camerons 22 Aug 2010

While waiting for the Organic farmer to lead us to his farm, we had a good look at his Organic Steamboat Restaurant in Brinchang; Ean admired ZHui's dress and Mom talked about living without electricity and piped water relying only on a generator and rain water in Kebun.
Mr Lee arrived at about 10.15am and took us to his 3 acre organic farm.

Meet Mr Lee of Camerons Organic Produce, a 3rd generation Camerons farmer with the mission to educate the public about growing vegetables the organic way. He was thought by a Japanese Sifu for FREE whose mission is to go worldwide to spread the word on organic farming. All Mr Lee did was to purchase an enzyme from his Japanese master to fund his travelling expenses.
Mr Lee was a walking encyclopedia on Organic Farming from composting to natural pest control in plants.
A handful of compost. It was burning hot with steam wafting out. The composting was a 3 month process and made up of soya mill, rice husk, coconut fibre and the enzyme as a starter.

Fai asked JY " Are you in Heaven??!" when he noticed the rows and rows of Xiao Bai Cai - JY's favourite vegetable.Snails that were crawling all over the place. JY has an affinity to snails and she let then crawl all over her arm.Han, Zhui and Ean inspecting a ladybird. It flew away after a while and that reminded my mom of this rhyme:
Ladybird Ladybird fly away home
Your house is on fire and your children are gone
All except one and that's little Ann
And she crept under the frying pan
Do not miss a visit to this Organic farm whenever you are in Camerons. Do make prior arrangements with Mr Lee, 0197796638
