Bucket Composting with Bokashi

Bernalillo County Extension Master Composters

Have you heard about bucket composting with the Bokashi method? It's a method developed in Japan that is inexpensive, easy, takes up little space, has no smells, doesn't attract pests, requires no turning, uses little water, and may be done year round. The method makes it hard to find an excuse not to compost your kitchen waste! You can compost all the kitchen scraps you normally compost as well as meat, bones, and oily things.

We regularly offer free Bokashi Bucket Composting classes. Please see our Class Schedule for the next class.

In the meantime, you can check out these slides from a talk given to BCEMC by Jill Van Nortwick.

The slides include a video about Bokashi composting. The video is made by a commercial company but keep in mind that you can do Bokashi composting in ordinary buckets.
