Make compost in TWO WEEKS with NO EFFORT with bokashi fermentation.
Like we are talking, very, very little effort. If you are lazy, this is for you. If you aren’t lazy, then you will wish you were because this is easy, peasy and fast. How fast? You could tend to the bucket in between TMZ commercials. Good thing because we all know that Harvey doesn’t wait.
Meat and dairy..no problem. Compost ALL of your food scraps with bokashi. All of them. Traditional composters take note.
No nasty smells, no bugs, minimal greenhouse gases, just ORGANIC biologically active, slow release compost easily and quickly.
No room for a compost pile? No problem. Bokashi compost kits will fit under the sink. Buy ours or make your own.
All you have to do is add the scraps, add the bran, and walk away. The microorganisms will do all of the work. You don’t even have to pay them. It is like owning your own factory, just like Veruca Salt.
If you have ever tried composting in the past, and it didn’t work. Or you gave up (c’mon, just admit it). Then bokashi might be right for you.
What is Bokashi Composting?
Bokashi composting is a safe, convenient, and quick way to compost food waste in your kitchen, garage, or apartment.
Bokashi means fermented organic matter in Japanese. Bokashi composting uses a selected group of microorganisms to anaerobically ferment organic waste. The microorganisms are applied using a impregnation carrier such as wheat bran. The fermentation process breaks the organic matter down in a process that is odor free. Since the process is done in a closed system you don’t have to worry about insects and smells making it ideal for urban or business settings. Unlike more conventional composting systems bokashi systems can break down heavier items like meat, fish and cheese.
The process is very fast and usually takes less than two weeks. The finished product will have a sweet, pickled odor and you will often see white mold mycelium coating the surface. Once the fermentation has completed you can add the scraps to a worm bin or bury them directly in the soil. They will take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to fully integrate into the soil depending upon your local soil biological activity and local climate.
If you don’t have an area to trench, no problem, you can covert bokashi pre-compost into a usable potting soil.
