Bokashi & Composting - County of San Diego

*REGISTRATION FOR THIS WEBINAR IS FULL. Unincorporated San Diego County residents can request access to the webinar recording by emailing* Bokashi is an innovative technique that allows you to compost all your food waste, reduces composting time, and allows fresh materials to be preserved and composted at your leisure. Learn how bokashi can complement your at-home composting in this 1-hour webinar! This is Part 3 in our 4-part Traditional Composting Series.


Join Solana Center at this webinar for an introduction to bokashi, a fermentation method that will enable you to compost all your food waste, including meat, dairy, and liquids. This "pre-composting" process uses an inoculant of effective microbes, including lactobacillus. Learn how bokashi can be used to increase your organic waste diversion and enrich your soil microbiome. 

Please note: This webinar will not cover backyard composting or vermicomposting, which are often used in tandem with bokashi. For more information on these composting styles, please join one of our other upcoming webinars on these topics, or check out the Compost It Yourself Guide.

This webinar will be held using Zoom, so please note that you will need to have the Zoom application installed on your device (computer, smartphone, or tablet) to attend and participate. You will receive an email with the link and password to join upon registering
