Full Instructions, Hints, Tips and Advice.
Each Bokashi Bin includes:
Built-in Stainless Steel Tap and Stainless Steel Drainage Platform - this allows you to easily drain off any excess liquid produced, allowing the organic waste to decompose at a quicker rate. The amount and colour of the liquid drained will depend on the type of foods you have put into the bucket. Fruit and vegetables tend to release more liquid than other foods.
The liquid produced during the fermentation process is highly beneficial and can be used when watering your garden or around the house. It will contain nutrients from the food organics and is alive with beneficial microbes. For garden or house plants you only need to add one teaspoon of liquid to every 5 litres of water and then apply directly to the soil. For trees and shrubs use 2 teaspoons per 5 litres of water. Always water the soil and avoid getting the feed on plant foliage. Around the house you can pour the concentrated liquid directly into your kitchen and bathroom drains, toilets or septic systems. The EMs (Effective Micro-Organisms) within the liquid will help to prevent algae build up and will help to control odours. The liquid should be used within a day or two after draining from the bucket - it should not be stored.
Bin Lid - vital as this is an anaerobic composting system. The lid has a rubber seal with three locks to keep it securely in place as the less air reaching the contents of the bucket the better.
Bokashi Bucket Dimensions:
Height 17 inches / 43cm
Diameter 13˝ inches / 34cm
Capacity 30 litres / 6.5 gallons.
Bokashi Scoop / Masher - this is used to press down the contents of the bin to help expel any air.
2kg Bokashi Active Bran - every time you add waste into your bokashi bin you should sprinkle a handful of the bran on top. This bran is enriched with beneficial, effective microbes and has a distinctive sweet smell, similar to hops. This bran will help to breakdown the waste.
What you can add to your Bokashi Bin - fruit and vegetable scraps, dairy products, meat and bones, fish, pizza, burgers, snacks, cooked leftovers, spent flowers and pet waste from small herbivores.
What you can do once the Bokashi process is complete - you can either add the waste to a compost bin, or add it to a wormery or dig a trench in the soil in your garden, add the waste and cover over.
