Learn the Japanese art of Bokashi fermentation and composting at this interactive presentation!

The Bokashi composting method is used for composting all organic waste, including meat, dairy and liquids. It was developed in Japan and used in Asia to ferment food prior to composting. The process uses lactobacillus bacteria to predigest waste matter, which eliminates odors and decreases composting time. The process is similar to yogurt, cheese, and sauerkraut. Bokashi is a great composting method for small spaces. 

In this workshop, we will cover the following topics:

  • What is Bokashi?
  • How is it used?
  • Bokashi bran making demo
  • Demo of actual Bokashi fermented food waste (FFW) compost
  • Bokashi compost bin build and setup
  • Creating potting soil from Bokashi

Class will be taught by our Environmental Educator, Ron McCord. Ron joined our team after completing our Encinitas Master Composter course. He is passionate about using Bokashi, along with traditional and vermi-composting, to divert organic waste from landfills and return literally tons of organic matter to our depleted soils as a nurturing compost amendment.
