How to Compost

“Turn waste into fertiliser and save the planet, by composting!”

Composting is the breaking down of organic matter, in a controlled environment, into humus, which is rich organic fertiliser (the same kind that takes years to build up in forest systems!). Composting at home is easy, and it can turn waste from your kitchen and your yard, into enough fertiliser to grow all the food you need.

Benefits:

  • Saves the planet!
  • Saves water
  • Recycles waste
  • Creates organic fertiliser

Benefits:

  • Quick
  • Easy
  • Tidy
  • Waterwise
Bokashi

Bokashi

Eliminate bad smells from your kitchen scraps, and turn them into fertilizer, using Bokashi!

What is Bokashi?

Bokashi (also ‘EM Bokashi’) is a culture of micro-organisms (yeasts and bacteria) which ferment kitchen scraps, out-competing bacteria that would otherwise produce bad smells, and preserving the scraps until you’re ready to bury or compost them. Bokashi can handle animal products, and as a byproduct, Bokashi produces a liquid fertilizer called ‘Bokashi juice’ which can be used to inoculate your soil with helpful microbes.

Benefits:

  • Preserves scraps
  • Handles animal products
  • Eliminates bad smells
  • Improves soil
