Bokashi in Motueka

…and where the hell is Motueka, you ask? Ask any kiwi, they’ll tell you. It’s a great little town on the top end of the South Island of New Zealand. A paradise really, with a fantastic coast, laid back lifestyle and nice climate. When I was a kid I had a friend who always went to Moteueka for the Christmas holidays and I remember being so envious of her, I don’t know why — I think it just always sounded like such a fun place to be. And by the look of it, I don’t think these kids are suffering either!

Anyhow the kids at Motueka South School are really keen to try Bokashi. They do their own blog, and in a recent post have written about how a woman from their local council came to talk to them about Bokashi. They write…

This is Kate and she works for the Tasman District Council. She came to talk to our class about composting. She showed us this composting system called BOKASHI. This idea was created in Japan because most houses in Japan do not have big gardens or places to put compost bins.

Hope it goes really well for you there with your Bokashi composting, guys! Good luck! And let us know how you get on!
