Compost Meat, Fish, and Dairy with the Bokashi Composting Method


| 10/18/2016 1:01:00 PM



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.
