Here at Le Fevre Kindergarten in South Australia the kids have been putting their leftover sandwiches and bananas into the Bokashi bin for 10 years. And growing their own fruit and veggies in these great raised beds. I bet there’s many more lovely stories like this around, we’ll try and dig out a few moreContinue reading “Bokashi kids: LeFevre Kindergarten in Australia”

Any Bokashi preschools out there?
We’re working here in Sweden with a lovely local preschool — it’s owned and run by the employees and they’re really committed to what they’re doing. One project they’ve started up lately is Bokashi composting.

Plus allContinue reading “Greenhouse Bokashi — also a hit!”

W’ve had a bit of a winter pause on our blog here, sorry about that — we’ve been snowed under on all fronts it seems. But life has returned to this stubborn part of the world and any day now the last scraps of snow will melt and we’re in the green. Relief! On theContinue reading “Summer dreams — in a store nearby!”
