Why Bokashi your food waste?
All food waste can be ‘bokashi’d’ including cooked and uncooked meat, sea food, small bones, dairy, onions, etc.
Bokashi composting isn’t smelly
Bokashi ferments food waste so that it doesn’t smell rotten. Instead it has a similar smell to beer or cider.
Bokashi Composting Made Easy
Using a bokashi bin is really easy. Add food waste into the bin. Add Earth Bokashi microbe mix. Close the lid. And you’re done!
Lots of Ways to Compost
Trench the contents direclty into your soil. Add it to your compost heap (the fermented contents are a great activator). Feed the contents to your worm farm; including the stuff you wouldn’t normally feed them like cooked food, acidic food, onions, etc.
Save Municipal Resources
By composting at home, you can reduce your household’s contribution to filling up landfills while also reducing your municipal collection load.
During fermentation the contents of a bokashi bin release a leachate (“tea”) which can be used, diluted, as a liquid fertiliser. Or, undiluted, as a drain cleaner.
