Mixua will be happy to explain this using tips and tricks and examples. This information session is available for groups (e.g. teambuilding). More info.

4) What is the Bokashi and how do you use it? by Mixua

30% of our residual waste is organic waste that can be composted, but this is often not easy if you don’t have a garden. Fortunately, Bokashi offers a solution. With this method, you can give your residual waste a second life without unpleasant odours or trouble from flies, in a small space. Moreover, you can compost many more types of food than is possible with a worm bin or garden compost. Mixua will gladly explain what it is and how it exactly works. Afterwards, you can get to work right away. This information session is available for groups (e.g. teambuilding). More info.
