Bokashi Composting keeps food waste out of landfill and adds life and vitality to your garden at the same time. The Bokashi One bucket can be used indoors and is easier to maintain than a worm farm. An essential for the sustainable home and garden!
Bokashi Composting is an eco-friendly, convenient and hygienic composting system designed to be used in the kitchen. It utilises food waste to produce a nourishing compost and rich juice which inject life and vitality into your garden.
What Can be Composted in the Bokashi One System?
All food waste, including meat, seafood, dairy, citrus, onions, garlic, egg shells and cooked, raw and processed foods.
How does Bokashi Composting Work?
Unlike traditional composting, Bokashi is a fermentation process. Bokashi One Mix contains wheat bran and rice husks inoculated with beneficial microbes. In anaerobic conditions (created in the Bokashi One Bucket simply by closing the airtight lid), these microbes break down food waste and create Bokashi juice. Both the fermented food waste and Bokashi juice add nutrients and life to your soil, for strong, healthy, nutrient-dense plants.
The airtight lid and tap make this system odour-free and suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
Add a thin layer of food scraps (2-3cm) to the bucket and press down to remove air gaps
Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of Bokashi One Mix over the compressed food scraps
Continue until the bucket is full
Leave undisturbed for 2-3 weeks for full fermentation
Bury fermented food waste in your garden or add it to your compost bin
While bucket is filling, draw off Bokashi juice, dilute, and add to your garden
Why Have Two Bokashi Buckets?
Two Bokashi One Buckets means Convenience!
It's important to let the fermentation process finish completely before food waste is buried. Longer fermentation leads to a quicker breakdown of the waste once in the soil, and more wonderful Bokashi juice is produced.
A second bucket gives you somewhere to put your food waste while fermentation finishes off in the first bucket. With a two-bucket system you can bury the fermented food waste from one at any time before the other bucket is full. With only one bucket, once full the waste needs to be buried immediately to continue to use the system.
