If this sounds too good to be true, check out institutions like Auroville in Pondicherry and Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in Coimbatore who practise the EM way of living, especially with agriculture. “Of the 15 small-medium farms in Auroville, there are at least five who use EM on a regular basis,” admits Dr Lucas Dengel, Eco-Pro, Auroville. And for a closer look at EM’s results, drop by Amethyst in Chennai. The city’s popular boutique and café is surrounded by brilliant green foliage, one of its biggest attractions, all thanks to EM. “I know of EM’s many uses but for me, it is most successful in composting,” says Kiran Rao, owner, Amethyst, who used EM to tackle the waste generated from their flowershop and café. With a little more interaction, EM can go a long way, adds Rao: “We really need more outreach programmes to make EM more popular on the domestic scene.” For details, contact maplesanjay@mac.com or 01352657119 newindpress.com
