Bokashi Compost Mix is a revolutionary and effective micro-organism which together with a Bokashi Bucket creates the ideal conditions for anaerobic composting of kitchen waste.

Using this mix 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 grinds, 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 and more life from the micro-organisms.

A by-product of the fermentation process, Bokashi juice, is alive with 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.

Bokashi is a Japanese term that means fermented organic matter. Bokashi is a pleasant smelling product made using a combination of sawdust and bran that has been infused with micro-organisms and has traditionally been used to increase the microbial diversity and activity in soils and to supply nutrients to plants.

- Place your kitchen waste into the bucket, then sprinkle a hand full of Bokashi over the waste.
- Repeat this layering process until the Bokashi Bucket is full.
- Drain off liquid (Bokashi juice) as necessary.

Once the bucket is full to capacity, the waste can be buried.
