    I noticed a few threads regarding Bokashi but figured I may as well post a new thread for everyone to see how I make my own home made version/s. It is truly a massive money saver.

    I’ve been doing it for a few years now small and fairly large scale. I only do it because I’ve found a way of doing it pretty much for free.

    I get overly descriptive to minimise repeated answering, so if there’s too many words just jump to the bottom of the page for the simplest of methods. I do use a combination of the second and last methods but most people could get away with the last.
    I’m currently working on a couple of other bokashi posts regarding building your own bins etc.

    For perspective, my single person vegetable waste is barely1-2kg/week, most of it coffee grounds! Not enough for any substantial composting so I started picking up the food waste at a local cafe. In the first three months I composted over a tonne of food (~90-120kg/week). Most of it in my bokashi bins.

    I’ve never had a bin putrefy so I must be doing something right with my experiments!

    Had a read through of your blog and bookmarked a few pages. Can’t wait to try a few out – especially the yoghurt 🙂

    If you do get around to it let me know how you go and if you hit any snags. I’m always keen for feedback. Although it’s so simple it takes a lot of neglect to go wrong.

    Good. I’m pretty good at neglect.
