Our 1 bin bokashi composting starter kit provides everything you need to successfully begin bokashi composting in your home, office, school or community.

Using a single bokashi bucket is a good choice for kitchens that don’t generate very much food waste. Note that for most households, our 2 bin starter kit is a better choice, as using two bins allows you to CONTINUOUSLY collect and compost all of your food waste as it’s produced.

This 1 bin starter kit comes with your choice of 1, 2 or 3 bags of premium bokashi bran. Shipping costs are the same for 1, 2 or 3 bags, because the bags fit inside the bin for shipping. This makes the 3 bag choice your best overall value.

Each starter kit includes:

  • 1 x bokashi kitchen composter (bokashi bucket),
  • 1, 2 or 3 x 2.2 lb (1 kg) bags of premium bokashi bran,
  • includes Complete Guide to Bokashi Composting booklet.
  • Saving you up to 21%.

This 1 bin bokashi starter kit provides everything you need to get bokashi composting started successfully in your home, office, school or community. Using a single bin is the preferred option for kitchens that don’t generate very much food waste, such as single occupancy homes, apartments, offices and classrooms. Also it’s perfect for those gardeners who don’t have a lot of garden space requiring compost, like an apartment with a small patio. For all other households, we recommend using our 2 bin system, as using 2 bins allows for a CONTINUOUS collection of your food waste.

This is one of our best selling bokashi composting kits, and is recommended for anyone looking to succeed with bokashi composting in their own home.

Other uses of bokashi bran

Microbe rich bokashi bran has multiple other household uses! In addition to building better soil, you can also:

  • dig it into existing compost piles to help re-invigorate them (this is especially popular during the colder winter months). With the addition of bokashi, life quickly returns to the pile, greatly speeding up the pile’s activity and quality of compost.
  • see great results by adding it directly to the garden as a soil enhancer. Simply dig in half a cup of bokashi per cubic foot of soil before planting into your garden or potting containers. The bokashi provides perfect conditions for plant root development.
  • add it to kitty litter boxes, animal cages and outhouses to help control odors. Simply sprinkle the bokashi bran in these areas for a noticeable difference.

Storing bokashi bran

Bokashi bran is best stored in an airtight container, out of direct sunlight, and within a few degrees of room temperature. When stored correctly, our bokashi bran will remain fully active for up to 18 months. Our bokashi bags are zip-lock style, and can be considered as airtight for storage.

    Great system for composting food scraps
    Great system for composting food scraps. No bad smell. The compost tea is far superior to any store bought compost tea. I have been amazed this spring how my flowers bloomed sooner , bigger and more numerous. My soil is holding moisture better than ever !!
    We tried a home made version with 2 five gallon buckets. The smell was like vomit. ? Also , it quickly became a pain to drain the tea every one to three days.
    Deffinately well worth the money.

    We LOVE these things! Outdoors, we have a static pile of leaves, grass and yard waste, but indoors has bothered me for a while—I HATE throwing out food waste. And things are even trickier at our house because I’m vegan and my wife isn’t, so we have plenty of non-vegetable waste. With the Bokashi bucket, problem solved! They’re easy to use, NO odor when sealed and surprisingly little odor when opened, the bokashi system is awesome. It takes us about 3 weeks to fill one of these large bins (that still fit under our sink, easy peasy) and when the first one’s full and fermenting, we’re filling up the second. With two bins, it’s easy to keep one in constant rotation, and they “pickle” everything from meat and bones to pizza and fruit. It all breaks down beautifully in the garden in about a month (slower in winter), and you get “tea” to use as a house plant food in the mean time! I HIGHLY RECOMMEMD this product! ???
