Bokashi composting allows you to compost much more waste generated in your home which ordinarily, would not be suitable for the compost heap.  It is a composting method which uses anaerobic bacteria (those which live in low oxygen environments) to ferment (or pickle) the waste and is small enough to fit in a kitchen, making it ideal for urban homes.

How Does Bokashi Composting Work?

The beneficial microbes are on rice bran which work in a low oxygen system to ferment the waste added to the bin.

This is the bran where the effective microbes (EM) are located. The bran is sprinkled on the waste in layers.
