Backyard Composting and Bokashi Basics Workshop – Pine Valley, Saturday, March 11, 2023
Join Solana Center for this 2-hour presentation where you will learn the basics of traditional composting and get an introduction to bokashi, a fermentation method that will enable you to compost all your food waste, including meat, dairy, and liquids. Learn more and register at bit.ly/3GBqALl.
This “pre-composting” process uses an inoculant of effective microbes to preserve kitchen scraps until you’re ready to incorporate them into your soil or compost bin. Learn how bokashi can be used to increase your organic waste diversion and enrich your soil microbiome.
In this workshop, we will cover
What is composting and why it is so important
What tools and materials you’ll need
What is bokashi, how does it work, and what are its benefits?
Successfully fermenting your food scraps with bokashi
Methods for composting bokashi-treated materials
Made possible through generous funding by the County of San Diego and County of San Diego Recycling. Thank you to our partner, San Diego County Library.

Our Food Cycle program allows community members who can’t compost at home to still divert their food waste. We have a triple bin aerated static pile system that is on a precise timeline to get food scraps cooking and turned into finished compost to be sent back out into the community as fast as possible. Our team of volunteers is instrumental in this process!
Every month we need help harvesting finished compost from one of our bins to make way for the next round of pile building. Join in and learn about composting and the amazing bokashi method! In this event you will assist with:
- Shoveling finished compost
- Sifting compost using our awesome trommel
- Moving compost to curing station
