Bokashi Composting: Scraps to Soil in Weeks by Adam Footer. Bokashi is Japanese for "fermented organic matter" and Bokashi composting is an easy and safe way to compost no matter where you live. This complete, step-by-step, DIY guide will have you producing great compost in no time!


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.

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.

You will explore:

  • the history, development and scientific basis of the technique
  • how to get 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.

176 pages, paperback, published on 1st of January 2014 by New Society Publishers.

    Everything you need to know about bokashi

    Lots of good info in this book. I found the chapter on using fermented food waste very useful - there are more ways than just digging a hole in a ground!
