The Garden Adventure

This blog started as an adventure in the Garden, a cashew farm in South India. Due to Life's circumstances the Garden Adventure has led us to the Netherlands, where the Adventure continues... India, Spirituality, EM, Positivity, Self development and values are the keywords in this Adventure. The peace and silence resort: "Mothers Peace Resort", which initiated the Adventure will still be on our minds. How did this Adventure start? Click here.

5 Years ago I started drinking EM brews (EM-Activated brews) to enhance my health. As stated before the EM micro-organisms make anti-oxidants, have regenerative properties and have an absolutely profound effect on their surroundings. These amazing creatures have the ability to built immunity everywhere they live, creating an environment free of diseases, full of health and full of micro-organisms striving for a good cause. They are the way to ideal (micro-) equilibrium. By drinking EM-Activated the micro-organisms will make sure the gut flora will be in perfect balance, just by suppressing harmful microbes and supporting the gut flora. Because of the anti-oxidants, vitamins and trace-elements the immune-system gets major boost. 
In the past 5 years I’ve experimented with various ingredients and brewing lengths. Using the EM-brewing Bible “an advanced brewing guide of brewing EM fermented secondary product”, an e-book by Vinny Pinto. And I’d like to share a delicious recipe I brew frequently. Most of these ingredients are cheap and easy to get, at least here in the Netherlands. Click here to see the recipe.

Prayer wheelsJust recently a friend told me he had his Activated EM measured by an expert whom measured life energies. He measured that Activated EM vibrates at 52.000 Bovis! Some of you might think......What is this Bovis scale? Well, thanks to a French researcher in the 1930's by the name of Antoine Bovis, we have a means to measure the "life force" or "Oneness" of objects (water, plants, rock formations, churches, just anything). Zero to 6,500 Bovis is a negative measurement, or life depleting. A Bovis meausurement of 6,500 is the normal human physical body energy, if there is no disease of any kind in the system. Any measurement higher than 6,500 is positive and life enhancing. And activated EM has been measured 52,000 Bovis! I drink it on a daily basis for about 5 years now and I can tell I haven't been sick in a very very long time. Read more about Bovis...

I found a post which I was planning to post 2 year ago (dated 14/05/07). I loved to read it again so here it is: "Since the entire enviroment and surroundings here are agricultural in one way or another the weather plays a very important role here. Therefore I like to dedicate a small post to the extremes of weather found here in the Garden. Nowadays we are living in the peak summer, which lasts at least for one month. "Agni masam" or the "Month of fire", with temperatures rising up to 38 degrees Celcius it feels like living in a giant oven. The days consist of sweating, drinking lots of water and try to stay in the shade between 10am and 3pm. But we are happy to pronounce that we have had some rains lately. Yesterday for example we got 1 cm of rain, brought by an extreme storm of winds, lightning, thunder and lots of rain. These kind of rains start by showing themselves at the end of the horizon in a group of dark clouds. Slowly floating towards the Garden. Everybody sees the clouds and prays for good rain. The coming of rain is very auspicious, it stands for "Divine Grace". While the clouds enter the Garden you already hear the raindrops falling on the leaves at the other end of the Garden. The sound gradually increases and within seconds you are standing in a rain, which is nothing compared to any rain in the West. Within 3 seconds you are soaked. Nevertheless thes conditions bring everybody into a state of joy. ANd I must say that thunder and lightning in combination with rain and wind in the Garden is one of the most incredible experiences you can have. You are feeling Mother Nature at Her full Glory. It truly is a joyful occasion.  
For people whom were wondering about my choice of picture at the left. Well...I am proud to present my first picture of thunder (actually it is a still form a movie I made of thunder ;) ). It has more of an UFO - War of the Worlds kind of vibe, but I think it's cool anyway :).

MonkeyOur 15 metres high bamboo fence is a protective house for many animals. At least once a week we walk along this fence as meditation with our two dogs at our sides. We know if we see them run towards something near the fence and a very distinct screaming sound is heard we have run across Garden’s family of “Bonnet Macaques”. The macaques seem to say: "get away you ugly dog....take a bite from your ugly boss." A group of 15 of these primates inhabits the Garden. Lately they are easily spotted at our mango area; trying to taste all the mango they can get their tiny hands upon, leaving a trail of half eaten fruits behind. In our research on them we stumbled upon some interesting facts.

The 1st lime season of the year has come to an end. Although we still have quite a few fruits, peak season isover. To look at the effect of EM on lime we have compared the numbers of last year and the numbers of this year (January 1st upto April 24th). Looking at the comparison we found some amazing results!

making BokashiBokashi, traditionally used as compost-inoculant and soil amendment in Japan where the word means “fermented organic matter’’. Bokashi is made by inoculating ricebran with micro-organisms (present in fertile mountain and forest soils or in our case EM - Motherculture) and keeping it in an oxygen-free environment to start fermentation.

In the Garden we are using Bokashi as compost-inoculant, soil amendment and animal food supplement.

Last week we have made a Bokashi for the dogs and cows here in the Garden. I took some pictures so we can easily start making a Bokashi!

morning Grace
This flower seen on the left side is a well-known Garden inhabitant. She symbolises “Divine Grace”, a most fortunate vibration. Here the plant is called “Grace” –due to her inner vibration- , scientifically she is known as Hibiscus mutabilus and commonly known as the confederate rose or cotton rose. This beautiful double hibiscus species has amazing flowers. The size of a full grown flower is 6 inches across. The flower blooms only for one day –in colder climates 2 days- and starts in the morning with a beautiful snow white colour and gradually changes into light-pink in midday and at the end of the day it has a purple pinkish flower (like cotton-candy).
Over 500 of these beautiful plants are already planted in the Garden. In November we started planting one “Grace” daily. We will continue this for one full year. If this project succeeds we hope that Divine Grace will be blooming daily in the Garden.

It is time to share some of our EM experiences. We are constantly surrounded by EM and apply it everywhere with amazing results. We drink EM-A on a daily basis and we absolutely can  not complain about our health. We are never sick! We  noticed that our skins are not oily anymore. And as I (Dennis) am constantly digging my hands in EM and its secondary products like Bokashi my eczema vanished completely from my hands! Another experience I had was with the consumption of some “bad” chicken. We were served fried chicken drumstick. While I started eating I could feel that the inside was cold and the meat was not tender like it should be. I like chicken very much, especially fried chicken, this and my stubbornness let me eat two whole pieces. After half an hour I started to feel feverish and got warm and cold and sweaty and I started to become a little delirious. When I noticed this I ran to my EM-A bottle and took an “overdose”. Within 15 minutes all the symptoms disappeared

a peacock near the GardenTo begin our collection of "Garden animals in the picture!" we appropriately start of with the national bird of India, the Indian Peafowl. Taking a stroll through the Garden will give us a high chance to meet up with this native Indian bird, which is well known for the beautifully coloured and impressing “tail” of the peacock (the male peafowl). Even when we are relaxing at our favourite spots in the Garden the peacock will make itself heard with its distinct mating call, which is like a very bad imitation of a cats “meow” sound. In North India it is said that the call is summoning the rain, as "me" comes from Sanskrit "megh" for "rain", and "aao" means "come".

In the time we have been in the Garden - about 3 months- we have seen a lot of things that can be changed to create a more successful and profitable farm. Besides this aspect, the changes are needed if we want to create a beautiful, harmonious and peaceful environment for "Mothers Peace Resort". To achieve such an ideal we have written a detailed proposal. This proposal covers the entire improvement which the Garden needs: organisation, care for the Garden, better irrigation and better security. To give an example: a part of the care issue is EM-use which will be discussed very deeply. This because of the use of chemicals in the present situation: chemical fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides and plant boosters. It is a fact that in the long-term the effects of chemicals are not any good for soil-health -which will automatically effect the plant life in the soil- the environment and even consumers-health. With the help of EM all these problems won't occur. Even better, EM will improve soil-health, the environment and consumers health!
As we can see in the proposal "the Garden adventure" has just started and set its first steps on the path to beauty, harmony and peace.

One of the projects in the Garden involves EM, which stands for Effective Micro-organisms. A miracle worker according to us and our experiences and to a lot of other EM-users. As we live in India where dogs are treated like "dogs" most of them are very unhealthy and look very unhealthy. We have two adopted stray dogs and one German Shepard. Our German Shepard, who was fed with EM, grew significantly bigger then the other German Shepards on the farm, which weren't fed EM. One stray dog has been fed EM since she was a puppy and has always been healthy. The other older stray dog which had a lot of health problems is, since the use of EM in its food, in full health. He is happier and even his skin rash and smell problems disappeared.

We are at the start of a whole new episode for the Garden, a 330 acre farm located in the south of India . We cultivate mainly cashew and lime and in a small way coconut, mango and jackfruit.  The farm will form the base of a peace and silence resort: "Mothers Peace Resort". The project is still young and just started her progress.
