Learn how to reduce your waste stream and artfully lower your carbon footprint with Bokashi Composting.

Food waste is 15.5% of landfill trash in California. As it rots, it produces methane that is 25 times as strong as carbon dioxide. When households keep food waste on site by composting kitchen scraps, GHG emissions are reduced. TimeBank Santa Cruz is promoting Bokashi Composting because it’s quick, easy and highly efficient. You’ll learn each step of this anaerobic fermentation process that quickly converts all food scraps (including meat, fish and bones) into a regenerative fertilizer. It's probiotics for your garden soil that your plants will love.
