I would like to try the bokashi but I need to know how to get rid of it afterwards. I have no community garden near enough to bring it to. What can I do with the stuff when the process is done? I have no use of it what’s-so-ever.

Thanks for the question. Glad to hear that you are interested in using bokashi to save your food waste from the landfill. There are a few options open to you if you don’t have any use for the pre-compost yourself:

1. Find someone (or somewhere) to donate your bokashi compost to. I know you say that there are no community gardens nearby but how about friends, family, urban farms or schools? Try posting it on a free site (like craigslist or gumtree) and you may be surprised how keen people are for free compost.

2. Contact local gardening and landscaping businesses. High quality compost is expensive, so they will likely be grateful for your bokashi compost.

3. Make a soil factory. A soil factory is a means of converting the bokashi pre-compost into ready to use compost, without needing a garden or compost pile.
