Collection: Bokashi

Bokashi, although often called "bokashi composting", is actually an anaerobic fermentation process. In essence, with the bokashi method you are pickling your kitchen wastes with specialized microorganisms rather than allowing them to decompose aerobically. With bokashi you can compost a wider range of organic wastes include meat, dairy and many other scraps not normally added to layered or vermicomposting systems! This makes bokashi an excellent partner strategy for these other approaches - a practice we highly recommend for best results.

The basic approach involves the use of some form of bucket or other sealed container, along with an inoculated bran mix that is sprinkled in with the food scraps. The unique mix of microorganisms, referred to as "Effective Microorganisms" (EM), is made up of different bacterial and yeast strains.
