The safe, clean and convenient way to compost ALL your food scraps

A well-researched, comprehensive guide to bokashi composting… people lucky enough to pick up this book will have created a beautiful microbial inoculant for their gardens and houseplants in no time. --- Phil Nauta, author of Building Soils Naturally

Bokashi composting is a safe, quick, and convenient way to compost in your kitchen, garage, or apartment, using 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. Unlike conventional composting, the bokashi method is quicker and easier, with compost usually ready to be integrated into your soil or garden in around two weeks.

From scraps to soil, Bokashi Composting is the complete, step-by-step, do-it-yourself guide to this amazing process, with comprehensive information covering:

• Background – the history, development and scientific basis of the technique

• Getting started — composting with commercially available products or homemade systems

• Making your own – system plans and bokashi bran recipes using common materials and locally sourced ingredients

• Growing – improving your soil with fermented compost and bokashi juice.

This essential guide is a must-read for gardeners, homeowners, apartment dwellers, traditional composters, and anyone who wants a safe, simple, and convenient way to keep kitchen waste out of the landfill.

In this upbeat, informative book, Adam Footer reveals the Bokashi composting option, and shows us how to further reduce our food waste, turning it back into the Earth and enriching the soil as we do. His explanation of bacterial culturing is clear and simply stated. Whether you purchase a home Bokashi kit or build your own, following Footers foolproof instructions, this is the manual for you. --- Mark Macdonald, West Coast Seeds

Adam Footer is a permaculture designer with a focus on soil building, food forestry, cover crops, water conservation and harvesting, and natural farming. He is a tireless promoter of the use of bokashi composting to maximize the recycling of food waste.

Supercharge your composting with the bokashi method

Synopsis:

The safe, clean, and convenient way to compost all your food scraps.

Synopsis:

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, with comprehensive information covering:

  • Background—the history, development, and scientific basis of the technique
  • Getting started—composting with commercially available products or homemade systems
  • Making your own—system plans and bokashi bran recipes using common materials and locally sourced ingredients
  • Growing—improving your soil with fermented compost and bokashi "juice"

This essential guide is a must-read for gardeners, homeowners, apartment dwellers, traditional composters, and anyone who wants a safe, simple, and convenient way to keep kitchen waste out of the landfill.
