Bokashi vs Composting

Composting releases a lot of green house gases into the environment. There is a better way. How do you get the micro organisms needed? Go to a Chinese grocery store and asked for the yeast to make rice wine. Dissolve the yeast (usually come as a ball) into a bowl of warm water. Add the solution with any of the wasted food. Don't be too wet. Mix well. Close the lid and let the micro organism to ferment the organic material without oxygen. In about 3 to 4 weeks, you will have a good fermented stuff ready for the next step. Bury the fermented stuff in soil. First dig a hole large enough for your fermented waste. Mix the waste with some soil. Then cover everything with more soil. In another three weeks, the fermented stuff will become good soil for new plants with all the nutrients. Here is a fuller explanation of the process.
