Learn about composting and bokashi!

Join Solana Center for this 2-hour presentation at the Institute of Contemporary Art San Diego- North (formerly Lux Art Institute), where you will learn the basics of traditional composting and get 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 to preserve kitchen scraps until you're ready to incorporate them into your soil or compost bin. Learn how bokashi can be used to increase your organic waste diversion and enrich your soil microbiome.
