The word Bokashi is a Japanese word meaning fermented organic matter. This composting system uses a pleasant smelling, bran-based material made with a culture of effective micro-organisms, which help to ferment your food waste and act as a compost activator. Using the Bokashi is easy - just place your solid food waste in the Bokashi composter, sprinkle Bokashi bran over top and seal the lid.
The main benefit of composting with a Bokashi is that you can place ALL solid food waste into the Bokashi - meat scraps, cooked food, pizza and bread crusts and old leftovers. Each time you place food waste into the Bokashi, sprinkle a layer of Bokashi bran over top and close the lid. The Bokashi system is equipped with a tap, which you can then open to release the composted natural fertilizer. Dig a hole in your garden and pour this thick liquid fertilizer into your garden to fertilize your plants and soil. When your Bokashi is full, simply dig a trench in your yard, add the contents of your bokashi, and cover with soil. In 4 to 6 weeks, all that will be left is rich, black soil.
The Bokashi system is an anaerobic composting system, which is different from aerobic composting systems such as worm bins or compost heaps. With the Bokashi, food breakdown occurs without oxygen, which is why Bokashis are equipped with tight-fitting lids that keep air out.
