How Does it work?
Put simply, food waste is layered with Bokashi One™ Mix in a Bokashi One™ Bucket. Due to the air-tight bucket and the micro-organisms present in the Bokashi One™ Mix, the waste ferments. It does not decompose inside the bucket, it reduces in volume as the water content of the waste drains through the grate at the bottom of the bucket.
The wonderful Bokashi juice produced is alive with micro-organisms and can be used in the garden and around the home. When the bucket is full, the waste is transferred outside and buried beneath the soil to complete the composting process. Breakdown is rapid thanks to the micro-organisms present in the Bokashi One™ Mix. Bokashi compost supplies soil with nutrients from the waste and more life in the form of the micro-organisms. The Bokashi One™ system significantly accelerates the composting process.
One Bucket or Two?
You may prefer to set up your system using two buckets. One of the benefits of having two buckets is the convenience, with only one bucket when it is full the waste needs to be buried to continue to use the system, with a second bucket the waste can be buried at a more convient time before you fill up your second bucket. Also by rotating the bucket the waste has more time to ferment (especially good for homes that produce a lot of waste), the longer the waste ferments the quicker it will breakdown in the soil and additionally more wonderful bokashi juice is produced.
