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

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.
