Video Update | How I turned Food Scraps into Soil with Bokashi Bin Compost

Updated: Apr 26, 2022

I'm very excited to bring you this video update. About 6 months ago, I bought a bokashi bin with the hope of achieving zero waste in my apartment and secondly to make my own rich soil at home. I wanted to show that it was possible to make compost at home in a small space.

I did a lot of research on this and wrote a detailed article on:

I also wrote about what bokashi is and the bran. You can click below to see the article.

5 months ago in February, I wrote an article on how it was going. The bokashi bin was filled to the top when it was done. All the food you see in those pictures went into this potato bag makeshift composter.

It worked! Click below on my video to see how it turned out.

I used:

  • a potato growing bag

  • Bokashi mix

  • leftover potting mix

I left this mixture to brew for 3 months.

It did smell at first, but when I came back to it 3 months later there was no smell at all.
