The Bokashi Bucket is a practical and convenient way to prevent food waste from ending up in landfill, while providing your garden with a nourishing food source and enriching microbes. This unique composting system uses the highly effective micro-organism Bokashi to create the ideal conditions for anaerobic composting, eliminating the odours and unpleasantness associated with putrefaction and decay.
You can compost almost every kitchen food waste including fresh fruit and vegetables, prepared foods, cooked and uncooked meats and fish, dairy, eggs, bread, coffee grounds, tea bags, wilted flowers and tissues. Do not include liquids or meat bones. The Bokashi Bucket composting system significantly accelerates the composting process of organic waste, producing rich compost which can be added to a conventional compost bin, or used directly in the garden, where it neutralises after 7-10 days.
A by-product of the fermentation process, Bokashi juice, is alive with effective micro-organisms and diluted with water makes a terrific fertiliser for the garden or pot plants. Around the house the concentrated Bokashi Juice can be poured directly into your kitchen and bathroom drains, toilets or septic systems to prevent algae build-up and control odour. It will also help to clean up our waterways by competing with harmful bacteria.

Genuine objective journalism not only gets the facts right, it gets the meaning of events right. It is compelling not only today, but stands the test of time. It is validated not only by 'reliable sources', but by the unfolding of history. It is journalism that ten, twenty, fifty years after the fact still holds up a true and intelligent mirror to events.
