From Fermentation to Fertilizer: Bokashi Composting

  • Abrons Arts Center, Garden 466 Grand Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

with Shig Matsukawa

12:00PM — 1:30PM

Bokashi is a fermentation process that utilizes microbes to pre-treat organic waste (including meat and dairy!) into nutrient-rich amendment for soil. Learn from bokashi expert Shig Matsukawa on how to accelerate your compost cycle, while creating nutrients for your garden. Shig has been working with EM (Effective Microorganisms), the microbes used in bokashi, since 1993. He helped to start the bokashi program at El Sol Brilliante and the Children’s Garden, fall 2009, where they've continuously recycled food waste back to the soil – 7.2 tons in 2018. @goodmicrobes
