Bokashi Composting

Saturday, September 24, 2022 - 10:00

Do you want to fight climate change by keeping all your food scraps out of the landfill? Food waste is 18% of landfill trash in California. As it rots, it produces methane that is 25 times as strong as carbon dioxide. When you keep food waste on site by composting all your kitchen scraps, GHG emissions are reduced.

TimeBank Santa Cruz is holding a Bokashi Compost class Saturday, September 24 at 10 am in Capitola.  Cost: $10. You’ll learn each step of this anaerobic fermentation process to quickly convert your kitchen waste into a regenerative fertilizer. This quick, easy and highly efficient method keeps ALL kitchen scraps (including meat, fish and bones) out of the landfill and accords nicely with SB 1383’s aims. It reduces your waste stream.

Bokashi Composting is rat-proof and takes little time/space to manage. A stand-alone process, it’s also an excellent complement to traditional composting as it speeds up decomposing piles. We'll have the supplies you need to get started: Bucket Systems for $22 and the Inoculant Mix for $8. These prices are lower than market rate. We'll also show you how to make everything yourself.

Once you’ve paid the $10 fee, we’ll send you the class address. Register here by Thursday, September 22:
