locally brewed microbes

Locally brewed microbes are a type of sustainable technology that involves harnessing the power of microorganisms to create useful products. These microbes are often grown and harvested on a small scale, using locally sourced ingredients and minimal energy inputs. The resulting products can have a variety of applications, from improving soil health and water quality to producing biofuels and other renewable energy sources. By using locally brewed microbes, we can reduce our reliance on non-renewable resources and support local economies. Additionally, this technology has the potential to create a closed-loop system, where waste products from one process can be used as inputs for another, leading to a more sustainable and efficient use of resources.

Please stay tuned for Part 2 where we use the inoculant in our agroforest on Maui.
