What makes Bokashi compost so great for your home and environment?
- Made using beneficial microbes
- A natural, safe and eco-friendly fermentation process
- Suitable for a wide range of food waste, including hard-to-compost foods
- Can be used to compost meat, small bones, seafood, dairy, onions and citrus fruit
- Neutralises odours during fermentation
- Balances carbon and nitrogen levels
When you add Bokashi compost to food waste, the moisture in the waste activates the microbes, which starts an anaerobic (“without air”) fermentation process.
After fermentation, you can add your compost to your garden waste, use it to rejuvenate potting soil or add it to an earthworm farm. The process also creates a liquid called Bokashi tea, which you can dilute and use to nourish your plants.
- Collect your food scraps and layer them inside a food composting bin with your Earth Bokashi bran.
- Keep the bin airtight and securely sealed.
- You will use approximately 400-500g of Bokashi bran per 25L bin.
- Once the bin is full, allow it to stand for 2 weeks to allow for fermentation.
- After fermentation, use the mixture to enrich your soil.
- Dilute fermented Bokashi juice 1:300 and use it as a potent liquid fertiliser for your garden.
