I love composting with Bokashi, it means I can compost raw meat, raw fish, dairy, cooked meat and fish as well as all the other items which go into a compost heap.
Bokashi means I have even less waste heading for landfill coming out of my kitchen and I already use a worm composter, my chickens and a traditional compost heap.
I love my Bokashi composter so much, I want you guys to try it too!
If you don’t know about Bokashi, check out my video on YouTube below about the benefits of Bokashi:
If you don’t want to listen to me rabbiting on then here are the highlights:
- Bokashi allows you to compost raw and cooked meat, fish and dairy
- You get less flies because it is a sealed low oxygen system
- It is a two fold process; step 1 is fermenting the waste, step 2 is burying the waste to compost
- It produces a juice/liquid which can be diluted as a feed for plants or used neat to help prevent clogs in drains
- It composts fast when buried
- You can compost all the other waste which would normally go in a big compost heap
- It is small
- It smells a bit like pickles or winemaking
- It doesn’t attract vermin or pests
- It improves soil structure
- Means less waste heading to the landfill
So if you want to reduce your waste heading to landfill, improve soil structure why not try Bokashi composting?
Need more convincing?
It is low odor, airtight and small enough to go in a cupboard or pantry. I keep mine on my back porch and it doesn’t attract flies.
The liquid produced as a by-product of the fermentation process helps to activate compost heaps, feed plants and reduce clogged drains and odors.
You can add fruit and vegetable cores, peelings, off-cuts and trimmings, coffee grinds, tea bags or loose tea leaves, small bones, eggshells, cooked food scraps and more!
It’s super easy to clean and use. Once the fermentation is complete you can add the waste to the compost heap or a hole in the garden to compost.
It’s made with recycled plastic too!
I’m super Excited about this post!
