Bokashi Bran Tip #1: Create Your Own Compost Pile
If your garden size allows for it, then you can create a traditional compost pile using Bokashi food waste, which you can combine with grass cuttings, leaves, twigs, and old plants. When combining your food waste with your prepared compost heap, the food waste will decompose along with it and therefore provide an organic and nutritious compost solution for all your garden needs.
Bokashi Bran Tip #2: Provide Food for Your Earthworms
Having earthworms in your soil is vital for a healthy garden, as they serve to eliminate bad bacteria and help to promote healthier ingredients in your soil. When earthworms ingest organic waste, it promotes nutrients which means healthier soil and plants for your garden. They work to better fertilize the soil, too.
Earthworms also significantly reduce composting time by working quickly and efficiently to break down food waste.
When using Bokashi Bran to feed your earthworms, remember:
- To ferment food waste for 2 weeks before,
- Introduce gradually, &
- Consider around 4 to 6 weeks to introduce Bokashi and fully convert.
Earthworms will eat all the Bokashi food waste, making it the perfect solution.
