Rebuilding Haiti must start from the ground up, with agricultural education
This is why I post here. We need to get Haiti sustainably growing food for itself and safely treating its water, waste-water and septic systems ASAP.
By giving Haitian’s the basic essential of good food security
would go a long way to putting Haiti on the road to recovery. A man
is too distracted by an empty stomach to do good work.
Now that Mains Unis have started that national campaign to teach the children in schools,(http://emrojapan.com/emnews/content/354.html) I especially need to teach this technology in the villages as soon as possible to be ready for planting season.
How to turn kitchen and garden waste into the best compost in under six weeks. Then encourage farmers to adopt this technology into their farming practices. EM-1® organic farming produces more than when fertilizers are used but can also enhance fertilizers and pesticides, allows soil culture to retain more water but if used without fertilizers and pesticides, after seven years they would be certified organic farms.
First need - Vetiver grass.
Is to incorporate A.E.M. and AEM fermented Bio-char applications(whether with fertilizers or not) to the planting of Vetiver grass in contours on hill-sides so as to speed up the process of Vetiver grass growth and of stabilizing erosion.
• Fact: AEM and Bio-char both enhance plant growth in a sustainable manner.
• Example: Terra Preta soils of the Amazon and Bolivia were always found under the ancient villages of long ago.
• Information: The Bio-charred soils were specifically fed by the perspiration of the villagers(yeast), Lactic Acid Bacteria from their milk products and from the surrounding waters came the Phototrophic Bacteria. I will be documenting at least six different plots across one slope to show the different effects on the Vetiver grass and will be sending results to IBI Brazil as a free abstract experiment.
Second need - Sustainable soil culture
Is to cultivate a sustainable soil culture that attract other beneficial microorganisms and insects(worms) that enhance plant growth
■ Fact: A.E.M. and Bokashi ferments compost, pickles kitchen waste in 4-6 weeks and when exposed to an anaerobic soils does attract other beneficial microorganisms that speed up the decomposition of organic matter that encourages plant growth, worms and lizards.
■ Example: 7-10 days after burying the AEM pickled kitchen-waste has matured fully due to the synergy of AEM and beneficial microorganisms.

Third need - Cleaning of Lakes and Ponds
I will be making my “Bio-char”Bokashi mud-balls on my first tour so as to instigate the Purification of Lakes and Ponds around the village till I get back to that village 6 weeks later to check on the lakes and show how to fine-tune the cleaning.
■ Fact: Regular Bokashi mud-balls have been shown to keep lakes clean with one application per season but regular Bokashi mud-balls should not be found by fish because if the rice husks are eaten, the digestive gases formed kill the fish.
■ Example: http://www.emrojapan.com/application/environment/water-purification.html
■ Information: As compared to using regular Bokashi mud-balls that encourage the fish into eating the rice-bran and blotting. I will be using Bio-char fermented with AEM which I believe will not attract the fish. This information I will again send the results to IBI Brazil as a free abstract experiment.
Fourth need - Effective waster-water and septic waste treatment.
While there presently is no waste-water treatment plants functioning in Haiti, it is imperative that the most effective treatment system be used, no matter how primitive the system might seem.
■ Fact: Treating waste-water with EM•1® at 1:(8,000-10,000) and septic systems with a small bag of Bokashi per month, reduces sludge by 40%, speeds the breakdown of the waste and immediately stops odors.
■ Example: http://www.teraganix.com/Effective-Microorganisms-Septic-Tank-Solution-s/106.htm
■ Information: After 5-7 weeks of AEM treatment this waste can be drained, treated again with AEM and dried, buried for 10 days and safely used as compost in the farms, void of pathogenic microbes
Fifth need - Effective animal husbandry using small quantities of AEM in animals food and animal wastes.
■ Fact: Animals experience better digestion
■ Example: Influence of Effective Microorganisms on Health and Immune System of Broilers under Experimental Conditions. http://emrojapan.com/emdb/search.html?catid=all&keywords=animal&year=&month=&search.x=41&search.y=9
■ Information: Again, due to AEM attracting other beneficial microorganisms and inoculating putrefying microorganisms. Activated EM•1® is used in Fisheries, hog farms, poultry farms, helps horse’s digestion when sprayed on horse feed, kills manure odors in general and helps prevent Hough and skin diseases.
