The start of my recycling my food waste into food for soil

Standard

I am very excited, I now have my own Bokashi digester bin!

I am very happy that my food waste will now longer go in the bin but in the Bokashi/Earth Probiotic bin in this way, my dustbin won’t smell as the food rots, I will reduce my impact on the landfills and I will be generating food for the soil to help my vegetable garden grow with these nutrients I will be providing. The liquid that accumulates can also be used to clean out drains which is certainly needed in my little house.

There are many very interesting tips and articles on the Earth Probiotic website: http://www.earthprobiotic.com/ Look on the Earth Probiotic website for stockists.

It seems to be an extremely easy system to use and very compact. I am currently keeping mine in the garage for easy access. 

I have already added some left over mielies, peas, broken up left over roll that had gone hard and a few other items. I was also keen to find out that the food scraps ferment in the Bokashi and don’t rot so there isn’t smelly moldy or rotten smell that will come off. It has only been two days but it smells a little like yeast so far. 

I think this Bokashi system could be very useful for many homes. I was glad to see that hotels and guest houses are now using it too. I am sure it will make a great difference to my life too.

I will update the blog with my progress.

Hope you are all having a super Monday!
