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.
