Overview

Bokashi is Japanese for "fermented organic matter." Bokashi composting is a safe, quick, and convenient way to compost in your kitchen, garage, or apartment, using a specific group of microorganisms to anaerobically ferment all food waste (including meat and dairy). Since the process takes place in a closed system, insects and smell are controlled, making it ideal for urban or business settings. The process is very fast, with compost usually ready to be integrated into your soil or garden in around two weeks.

While bokashi has enjoyed great popularity in many parts of the world, it is still relatively unknown in North America. From scraps to soil, "Bokashi Composting" is the complete, step-by-step, do-it-yourself guide to this amazing process, with comprehensive information covering: Background--the history, development, and scientific basis of the techniqueGetting started--composting with commercially available products or homemade systemsMaking your own--system plans and bokashi bran recipes using common materials and locally sourced ingredientsGrowing--improving your soil with fermented compost and bokashi "juice"

This essential guide is a must-read for gardeners, homeowners, apartment dwellers, traditional composters, and anyone who wants a safe, simple, and convenient way to keep kitchen waste out of the landfill.
