How to build your Bokashi composter and start composting today!
We moved to the suburbs and now I am composting. We simply eat a ton of veggies and generate some serious green waste. It makes me sad to send the scraps from high quality food off to a landfill to be buried with batteries and plastic bottles for eternity. I spent money on that organic trash yo. This lead me to begin the COMPOST QUEST! We are living in a town home with a professionally landscaped yard, so I am not sure where I will put it once complete, but hey it won’t be in the dump.
First off I bought a rotating composter to put on the porch. This filled up within about 3 weeks. Now it’s brewing for a while.
Then I bought a worm factory for the garage. The worms are hungry, but don’t knock out the compost as fast as I was hoping. Also not as stinky as one might think.
Now I am off to try the Bokashi composting method! There are a few great resources for supplies and buckets to compost, but they carry a significant price for a 5 gallon bucket with a spigot. This lead me to make a few Amazon and Uline orders so that I could DIY the Bokashi composter.
The Bokashi method boasts some major advantages over traditional composting, such as the ability to compost meat and dairy scraps, smell free, faster, etc. Can’t wait to see if it is true…
