Beginners Guide to Bokashi Composting: What Is Bokashi Composting?
Bokashi composting is a great way to compost all food waste. Bokashi composting uses beneficial microbes to quickly and easily convert food waste into microbe and nutrient-rich compost. It is rapidly becoming many gardeners’ preferred way to compost at home and to build healthy, productive soils.
The key to the Bokashi process is fermentation. In using the Bokashi bin, you are in effect rapidly fermenting your food waste, and in doing so converting it to a microbe rich format that becomes extremely accessible to your soil ecology and plant roots.
In just two weeks after burying your fermented food waste in your garden, it will be assimilated into the surrounding soil web, where it will benefit everything from microbes to macrobes, and in turn the plants themselves. The more you do this, the better and more natural your garden will become.
