Free Virtual Workshop: Bokashi & Composting

  • AGES All ages
  • COST Free

Bokashi is an innovative technique that allows you to compost all your food waste, reduces composting time, and allows fresh materials to be preserved and composted at your leisure. Learn how bokashi can complement your at-home composting in this 1-hour webinar!

Join Solana Center at this webinar for an introduction to bokashi, a fermentation method that will enable you to compost all your food waste, including meat, dairy, and liquids. This "pre-composting" process uses an inoculant of effective microbes, including lactobacillus. Learn how bokashi can be used to increase your organic waste diversion and enrich your soil microbiome.

Please note: This webinar will not cover backyard composting or vermicomposting, which are often used in tandem with bokashi. For more information on these composting styles, please join one of our other upcoming webinars on these topics, or check out the Compost It Yourself Guide.

In this webinar, we will cover the following topics:
What is bokashi, how does it work, and what are its benefits?
What tools and materials you'll need
Successfully fermenting your food scraps with bokashi
Methods for composting bokashi-treated materials
