What you get: 700g Bokashi bran in a recycled plastic food waste container.
What makes Bokashi composting more eco-friendly than conventional composting?
- Made using beneficial microbes for a natural, safe 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 sprinkle Bokashi compost onto your food waste, the moisture in the waste activates the microbes, starting an anaerobic (“without air”) fermentation process.
After fermentation, you can add the compost to your garden waste, trench it in your soil, rejuvenate potting soil or add to your 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, the mixture can be used to enrich your soil.
- Fermented Bokashi juice can be diluted 1:300 and used as a potent liquid fertiliser for your garden.
- The container can be re-used for collecting daily food waste.
