Backyard Composting & Intro to Bokashi Workshop -

Through composting and Bokashi fermentation, you can improve the quality of your soil, reduce waste and air pollution, while saving energy, money, and water! Learn the basics in this presentation!

Learn about composting and Bokashi!

Join Solana Center for this 2-hour presentation at the beautiful Two Forks Farm, where you will learn the basics of backyard composting and get an introduction to Bokashi bran - an easy way to manage your food waste.

Bokashi is a method for fermenting all organic waste, including meat, dairy, and liquids. The process uses lactobacillus bacteria to predigest waste matter, which minimizes odors and decreases composting time.

Bring grocery bags, cash and checks to participate in a little fresh produce shopping from our hosts at Two Forks Farm! There will also be eggs for sale from their on-site chickens!

  • What is composting and why it is so important
  • What tools and materials you'll need
  • Which items are compostable and which are not
