Bokashi Method

Let me be completely honest about this topic: I do not use the Bokashi method. In my opinion, it is a costly method that just adds a step in the composting process. You have to pay for bokashi material to add to your waste. When the Bokashi method is finished, you add the "finished" bokashi product to your compost pile. Seems to me it would be easier and cheaper if you just added your waste to your pile to begin with.

However, a few people have told me they love Bokashi although they have not been able to explain why. Here are some resources to get you started if you would like to try it:
