Bokashi composting is a composting method that uses a special mix of microorganisms to ferment food waste quickly, without producing bad odours or attracting pests. Here's how you can do it in three simple steps:
Collect food scraps: Collect food scraps in a Bokashi bin, which is a container specifically designed for this method of composting. You can add almost any food waste, including meat, dairy, and citrus.
Add Bokashi mix: Add a handful of Bokashi mix to the food scraps after each layer is added. This mix contains microorganisms that will ferment the food waste and break it down into nutrient-rich compost.
Wait and bury: Once your bin is full, let it sit for about two weeks to allow the fermentation process to complete. Then, bury the fermented food waste in a garden bed or compost bin, where it will continue to break down into compost.
That's it! Bokashi composting is a great way to reduce food waste and produce high-quality compost for your garden. We've got loads more composting tips and troubleshooting on our Wiggly email newsletter - and offers too!
