How to compost with Bokashi

Fall is here! The weather may be cooling and leaves falling from the trees, but our garden is still teeming with life and colour! Click on the images to enlarge.


A lot of people who come and visit us are also very surprised to see a garden in full bloom at this time of the year, but our blooms will usually last until the first frosts, which usually arrive in the middle or end of October. It’s quite a sight, seeing all the frozen flowers when the first frosts arrive! Our very young flower meadow is also looking quite good right now, even if it is quite a new addition to the garden, which hasn’t established itself quite yet. Last year, we  started planting this meadow, which we hope will become larger and larger every year and help us attract even more insects and birds into our garden. Here are the first images of our meadow, which is coming along quite nicely. It will probably take another 2 years before it is completed, but we are loving the red poppies and purple flowers!

This week on our channel:

We are passionate about gardening in an organic and sustainable way, so this week, we show you an easy and odourless way to compost, which you can do regardless of wether you live in a house og an apartment. Introducing: Bokashi!

    I learned something new today! I compost the traditional way but am now convinced I like this Bokashi method even better. I even have a free day to get started! Thank you for sharing this information. I look forward to seeing your kitchen garden as it develops.

    This is wonderful! I just started bokashing composting myself, because I live in Northern Ontario, and it’s seemed a better method for me personally than traditional composting: it’s hard to turn a traditional compost when you’re buried under 5 feet of snow for more than half the year! Lol! Thank you for posting this. I’m still new at this method of composting and you have boost my confidence 🙂

    Hello my favorite two guys,

    I have enjoyed many of your knitting instructional videos and patterns. Besides these, I am really enjoying watching this video on compost as I love gardening. Thank you very much. You are both a joy to watch and listen.

    Hello, I live in India. And I am doing Bokashi for the last 3 years and I have started providing services to people to help them compost their kitchen waste in their home using Bokashi method. Since space is a major constraint here, I do the curing process ( soil factory) slightly different than yours. For the same reason I can’t use plastic buckets for curing process. My customers are also liking this process.

    Wonderful! We used to have a food waste collection service by our local authority which has stopped now, so this would be a perfect substitute. Thanks so much Arne & Carlos for showing us this and your fabulous garden.
