The bokashi composting process involves placing organic waste materials in an airtight container, such as a bin or a bucket, and adding a mixture of microorganisms, or bokashi "bran," (also DIY) to the waste. The microorganisms ferment the waste, breaking it down into a nutrient-rich compost that can be used as a soil amendment.

Bokashi composting has several advantages over traditional composting methods. It can process a wider range of organic materials, including meat and dairy products, and it can be done indoors, making it suitable for small spaces. It is also faster than traditional composting, with the fermentation process taking only a few weeks.

Overall, bokashi composting is a convenient and efficient way to compost organic waste materials and produce a valuable soil amendment. It is a sustainable and environmentally-friendly alternative to disposing of waste in landfills.
