Bokashi is Japanese for "fermented organic matter". Bokashi composting is a safe, quick, and convenient way to compost in your kitchen, garage, or apartment using a specific group of microorganisms to anaerobically ferment all food waste (including meat and dairy). Since the process takes place in a closed system, insects and smell are controlled, making it ideal for urban or business settings. The process is very fast, with compost usually ready to be integrated into your soil or garden in around two weeks.
While bokashi has enjoyed great popularity in many parts of the world, it is still relatively unknown in North America. From scraps to soil, Bokashi Composting is the complete, step-by-step, do-it-yourself guide to this amazing process, with comprehensive information covering:
- Background - the history, development, and scientific basis of the technique
- Getting started - composting with commercially available products or homemade systems
- Making your own - system plans and bokashi bran recipes using common materials and locally sourced ingredients
- Growing - improving your soil with fermented compost and bokashi "juice"
This essential guide is a must-listen for gardeners, homeowners, apartment dwellers, traditional composters, and anyone who wants a safe, simple, and convenient way to keep kitchen waste out of the landfill.

Excellent and comprehensive.
thanks for this great book on a subject which we all can learn more to master to regenerate the planet and enrich the soil and the food we eat.
The comprehensive data in this book allowed me to get a new fresh perspective on the Bokashi science and to apply it here locally...We have thousands of bokashi users here in hawaii but there is little contact opportunity to learn these details so this book is extremely helpful to me in getting a broad perspective of the field and the research.
