Huns garden is a natural farm.  We are finding creative ways to farm and to coexist with mother nature.  We farm without the use of any type of irrigation.  The only source of our water is rain.  We use the living mulch (weeds) to help shading our youg plant from the hot sun.  Many people who has visit the farm during the tour has seem the opposite of the norm in farming practice.  

We appreciate all of our visitor who has come from all part of the city to visit us.  Many has a chance to talk to us, other are very far away that couldn't hear what has been said.  Also, we are sorry that a couple of groups pictur are accidentally got erase when we try to transfer.

Many has given bad direction to the farm.  We are sorry that some of the sign we put up are small and hard to see.   Anyway, we are glad that all who want to come to see us has come and find us.  We will take in your comment seroiusly and hope to improve up on that for the further farm tour.
