Put simply, food waste is layered with an enzyme in a bucket. Due to the air-tight bucket and the micro-organisms present, the waste ferments. Rather than demposing, it reduces in volume as the water content of the waste drains. The “Bokashi juice” produced is alive with micro-organisms and can be used in the garden. All kitchen waste, can be composted—a benefit of Bokashi composting over worm farms or traditional composting. A method appropriate for those with a big yard, a small yard, or NO yard!
