The KNF Times – January 2021

Aloha Pure KNF Foundation members and allies in human form!

Congratulations on surviving 2020!!! 

With a new year upon us (according to the western calendar, though I personally am much more inclined to follow much older/natural calendars), it’s commonly a time to look toward the next 12 calendar months. So thank you for taking this opportunity to join me in sharing the vision of what the Pure KNF Foundation is sowing to further our mission “to balance life through microbial awareness, education and action”. 

I am really inspired to follow the same path Master Cho tread in his early days by publishing his works in an agricultural journal in a serial fashion. It is my sincere hope that this year the Pure KNF Foundation will be able to publish an issue of the KNF Times each month. My aim is to guide the production of substantial works that will be worthy of collectors, and to have the KNF Times to be so sought after that these issues inspire natural farmers all over the globe to share their good works, to contribute articles of their endeavors, and to share the love we are all growing together.

If that alone was not enough, on a more concrete and local level, a major focus for the Foundation this year is the Food Taco Project. The Pure KNF Foundation is partnering with other nonprofits to bring this idea to fruition. This opportunity is so exciting and we have dedicated the majority of this issue of the KNF Times to expanding the Food Taco concept further. It is a really accessible way for folks of all walks of life to engage in food production, to get into KNF in a controlled environment, and to make a huge impact in creating more food security. 

On a completely separate topic, with the closing of freedom (as in speech) of the internet giants in general, I am wanting more than just a Facebook connection between the folks doing the good work. In this regard, we have been working on KNF Support (www.knfsupport.com) as a platform to facilitate questions and answers amongst the community with an intentional focus on the recognition and reward of experts sharing expert answers. This platform is independently hosted and operated by the Foundation, and we are working to develop terms of service and a privacy policy that respects everyone involved and does not treat you as “the product”. 

Because of my association as the President of the East Hawaii Chapter of the Hawaii Farmers Union United (hfuu.org) I am also bound to facilitate local meetings here on the Big Island, and I hope to be able to set up a video connection for those of you who are not here to not get the FOMO. Check our website www.PureKNF.org  for updates and information about events.

Over the past year the Foundation has been working on our membership opportunities, and in the process we have realized that this is a delicate task and will really shape how our organization is to grow and support everyone as a whole. As such, we have decided to take a bit more time in formalizing anything official so that we can be backwards compatible with existing certification. We really want to get this right and have the energy and effort flow both ways in a beneficial fashion. 

I hope you enjoy this episode of the KNF Times, and as always, Long live the natural farmer!
