Bokashi

has any one had success with Bokashi and if so where did you get the starter from ? is it worth all the trouble - we have good compost heaps and worm farms so the only advantage i can see is being able to use citrus and protein sources .  did anyone make their own tapped buckets and if so where did you get the specifications from ?

Welcome Mary-Ann. Love your plan to retire on an acreage to pursuit sustainable living - something that is close to the hearts of many people on this site. I'm sure you will be interested in the garden visits which Dianne will be more than happy to tell you about. Enjoy the site.

 
 
 

Fresh Local Provisions: Fresh Food, Local and Online

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.

 

What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
