Sometimes plants need more than healthy earth. At Jiwa Damai we also try alternative methods of taking care of the coconut trees which are attacked by the Rhinoceros Beetles, among other strategies, like feeding the roots and cleaning the leaves.

For instance, as science has already proven that water is influenced by emotions, by words or by thoughts, we try to help our coconut trees by hugging them. We send them our support thoughts and we ask them if there is something they might need. We also ask the Rhinoceros Beetles to retreat because they are harming the trees.

During the Permaculture Design Course Through the Heart in February 2015 we were happy to teach our students about a very useful local method of creating indigenous micro organisms – IMO.

Using a bamboo cut in half, you have to put boiled rice to fill it. After closing, it is buried in the earth and left there for 3 days to develop a healthy fungus. Then it is mixed with molasses and water to grow more IMO. Why is IMO important? Because it adds microbes to the soil in order to render it more fertile. Find out more here or here.
