What is

Bokashi Composting?


Bokashi composting is the quick, safe, convenient way ofcomposting food waste in the garage, kitchen, or apartment.

 

Bokashi refers to fermented organic compost in Japanese. This type of composting makes use of a specific group of microorganisms for fermenting anaerobically the organic wastes. The microorganisms are used with the help of an impregnation carrier like a wheat bran. The process of fermentation breaks the organic matters in a process which is free of odor. Since this process is carried on in a close system, you needn't have to bother about the insects or smells making it appropriate for business or urban settings. Unlike conventional composting methods bokashi system easily breaks down the heavier items such as meat, fish or cheese. This process is actually very fast and  takes even less than two weeks. The finished material possesses a pickled sweet odor and you'll often see a coating of white mold mycelium on the surface. Once you're done with the fermentation, you may put the scraps into any worm bin or bury directly in soil. It will take about 2 to 4 weeks to totally integrate the soil, a little depends upon the local biological activity of the soil and that of the climate. In absence of an area to trench, you may cover the bokashi pre organic composting in any usable potting soil for worm composting further later on.

 

Worm composting basically is using the worms to recycle the food scraps along with other organic materials into a valuable soil amendment called vermin compost, or worm compost. Worms consume food scraps, these turn into compost as they go through a worm's body. The compost exits the body of a worm through the tail's end. The compost may then be used in growing plants. In order to understand why vermi compost is healthy for plants, remember that the worms are consuming fruits rich in nutrients and scraps of vegetables, then transforming them into nutrient-rich composts.
