Bokashi composting is a way to turn table scraps and kitchen wastes into a rich garden soil. It allows you to eliminate food waste while making compost. The Bokashi method does not produce bad smells or attract pests, and unlike traditional composting, it is fast and it uses meat and dairy products in addition to plant material.
