PDC Through the Heart, Indigenous Mirco Organisms

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.
