At the tail end of 2010 I visited South Korea where I took the time to learn about agriculture in Korea.  I was inspired by Korea’s unique history and current sustainable agriculture efforts and will continue to learn more and share here.  Most of the information I gathered was from the capitol city Seoul where I didn’t get to talk with any farmers but instead I visited Nonghyup Agriculture Museum, Seoul National University galleries, Markets,Pulmuone Kimchi Museum, National Folk Museum, Korea’s Forest Research Institute, Hongneun Arboretum, Rural Development Administration Organic Agriculture Research Labs, and Seoul’s watershed, Namyangju where the International Society of Organic Agriculture Research 3rd Annual Conference will be held in Oct. 2011.

Next time Im  in Korea I will go straight to the rural regions and see first hand what is going on in the fields. I have been growing vegetables in the Catskill mountains on a small farm since 2005 and considering the Korean and Catskill growing seasons are so similar… I will most likely I will find myself out in the Korean country side in a greenhouse.
