What Is Bokashi?



Bokashi is a Japanese term that means, roughly translated, ‘fermented organic matter’. There are a lot of great benefits to using this method of composting that appeal to most people. Some advantages right away are that it takes almost no work to set it up and continue to use it.
All you need to get started is a small or large bucket with a lid (the type you see large paint quantities in). You can find these at any hardware store unused and in a variety of sizes.

Optimally you need something at least 3 feet by 3 foot by 3 foot (yard squared) to allow for proper heating and to assure you have an ample supply of compost when you're finished. Anything smaller may not work as well, may take longer to process, and may not be a good incubator environment for the microbes that convert food waste or organic matter into fertilizer (amongst other things you can use this mixture for later).

What Is Bokashi?

Bokashi comes in a mix you can just add to a bucket and supplement with your organic waste of any kind. You mix in the organic waste and close the lid, the rest is automated by the microbes. As you acquire more waste, you can add it to the mix and the microbes will consume it, break it down, and render the organic matter into nutrients for the soil/mixture. This highly potent fertilizer can be used on any living plant life through the soil. Compost replenishes the nutrients in the soil bringing it back to life. The better the health of your soil is, the better and more powerfully it helps the lawn/grass, plants, trees, and garden areas grow and the better your fruits and vegetables come out.

With the right soil chalked full of the right ingredients a plant needs to thrive can give you award winning results (huge tomatoes, etc...). Bokashi is a relatively new type of composting to most people although it's been around for some time now- it's just becoming hugely popular and more people are hearing about it. It's one of the easiest and quickest forms of compost building you can find!
