How has the Bokashi Bran® system been implemented at Breakwater Lodge?
Food waste drums stand next to every dustbin in the kitchen. Food waste, paper serviettes, kitchen paper, coffee grinds, eggshells etc., are all separated at source. Bokashi is sprinkled over the food waste in a layering fashion during the mealtime shifts. The drums are kept sealed when not in use. Every night, the drums are weighed for reporting purposes and taken for composting.
Composting at Protea Hotels by Marriott Breakwater Lodge.
The first compost box was constructed in less than two hours. What an impressive maintenance team! It is a double-sided compost box that will serve to turn the compost every month. The autumn leaves have fallen and made for an excellent carbon source in their compost box. The food waste treated with Bokashi Bran® was cocooned inside the decomposing leaves. The compost will be turned after five weeks, and the material at the bottom of the box will be used in the planned herb and vegetable garden pots.
Herbs and vegetable garden pots.
Herbs are costly but so easy to grow. Protea Hotels by Marriott Breakwater Lodge will use their compost to grow herbs and vegetables for the kitchen. We’ll post pics when this second phase of the project happens. Watch this space.
Bokashi Bran® is delighted to welcome Protea Hotels by Marriott Cape Town Waterfront Breakwater Lodge to the “family”. We look forward to a long, green relationship.
