Loo Urban Farm want to bring good Permaculture practices to the urban cities and build good Urban Permaculture practices in the cities. We want to make farming in the urban cities practical, commercialize-able, sustainable yet eco-friendly and as close to the nature as possible. We want to revolutionize and refine farming especially in the course of urban farming and future farming methodologies.
One of the common practices in Permaculture is to collect and use our own seeds. Why collecting seed become an important part of Permaculture, Urban Permaculture or Urban Farming? We enjoy many benefits for doing so. There are many farmers in the west who have keep their tomatoes seeds for many generations over decades.
In the process of clearing grass to prepare for my green house, I was not sure how to handle hips of grass cleared from the land. I then put them all in one empty space and covered them with kanvas. A month later, I found most of the grass has decomposed and there are a lot of earth worms in it. That is very interesting indeed.

I cut the grass and through them into the chicken barn. The checken will eat some of the grass. The remaining will dried and start to decompose. As days goes by, chicken drop drops on the grass adding source of N(Nitrogen) to it. As the place has a lot of earthworms, “vermicompsting” started
Checking back my blog here. I found, I have not been writing and updating since last August. For the past 4 months, it has been very challenging. Rushing to complete all the setup and planting areas. Continue research and development on vertical system. Improve on existing design. Design modular home system. Etc, etc. However, I am glad that most if not all these challenges have been overcome to satisfactory level.Continue Reading >>>
Multi-purpose eco enzyme is green, safe and all natural. I heard we can use it as detergent for laundry and dish washing, household bleaching and cleaning liquid, pest control to drive away insects and natural fertilizer to improve the soil, etc. It has anti-bacterial and anti-viral agent, yet non-toxic and can tremendously reduce global pollution. Therefore, I’m going to start doing eco enzyme for my non-toxic and pesticide-free cultivation.
