I’ve been organically gardening my whole life and am always looking for more ways to utilize natural resources in ways that will replenish the nutrients my plants take from the soil. I am passionate about protecting our earth and always leave my gardens healthier than I found them without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
Join the Bokashi revolution and turn your kitchen scraps into garden compost. Bokashi is a safe, non-toxic compost starter used in conjunction with an indoor composter to conveniently recycle food waste right in your kitchen. Bokashi can also be used to rejuvenate your household plants and control unwanted odors in your home.
First developed by ancient Japanese farmers, the recipe has been passed down through the centuries. Enhanced with probiotic technology and utilizing the power of all natural beneficial microorganisms, bokashi quickens the composting process by fermenting food waste. Complete breakdown of the waste will occur after it has been transferred to the soil in approximately two weeks depending on the climate and soil conditions.
Bokashi controls odor normally associated with food decay, allowing you to conveniently start the composting process after every meal. Join us to learn how to process your kitchen excess, decrease your landfill waste, and provide an exceptional boost to your garden using Bokashi’s effective microorganism cold composting. Your gardens will thank you.
