Korean Natural Farming-Bokashi
I will give you a list of ingredients and supplies you need to make your first batch of lactic acid bacteria and start this awesome way of Composting food scraps with fermentation. I have even used this method to compost meat and other things you wouldn't otherwise be able to compost. I even use a large underground bokashi composter to process our animal feces so that it doesn't go into the landfills.
Once bokashi is added to your garden it is not only full of pre-digested, ready to assimilate nutrients, but also full of probiotics....yea those things in your gut that help you process food? Well turns out probiotics are good for the soil too :)
The added benefit to using this technique is gardening is the results! Probiotic gardening techniques fend off pest and powdery mildew issues.
And if you need another reason to think Bokashi is the bees knees; all of your composting can be done in a 5 gallon bucket under a sink. This is perfect for apartment dwellers and urban gardeners.
Training & Qualifications
I am a certified Master Gardner Volunteer through Oregon State and have been using this technique in my compost system and gardens for a few years now. I have composted for much longer but Bokashi is by far my favorite method.
