Our Bokashi article is in Grassroots!

We’ve another article in Grass Roots #261 (Oct/Nov 2020)

We’re on page #54 with an article called ‘Buckets of Bokashi’ which is, unsurprisingly, about Bokashi composting.

It’s a detailed introductory article to this amazing fermentation/composting system that we use heavily at Ligaya Garden.

We have a whole page dedicated to the topic of Bokashi on this website but I reckon I did pretty well with the article.

We’re happy to have so many articles accepted by this venerable lifestyle/sustainability magazine. It truly is one of the foundation stones of the Grass Roots, conscious lifestyle movement.

Give it a read and tell me what you think 🤔

  1. Once you’ve got a bin of finished bokashi what do you do with it?

    (Reading your articles on bokashi made me wistful for my bokashi but in the end I had nowhere to put the finished product.)


    • We add it to the worm farms, feed some to the chooks, Athena eats some here and there, you can bury it in the ground where it vanishes in a week, put it in the bottom of large pots when potting up or even put it in your compost heap where it will give it a huge boost


      • I didn’t have anywhere to put it in the ground in the end (ground covered in perennial plants) and the rats got to it both there and in the compost bin. I guess you have a warmer climate, which means the rats are less attracted to people’s compost heaps and such?


      • In the Philippines, where Bokashi is used a lot, they’ve found that Bokashi deters rats ands cockroaches. That is of course, lots warmer than here and may be something to do with the smell and bacteria
