Step by step guide

*Optional: Tear into finer pieces to speed up the breakdown.

Zip the bag & store in a shady area
* Layer with brown matter whenever you add kitchen scraps.
*Turn the compost pile at least once a week.
For home composting we recommend composting raw, non-animal products (eg. vegetable scraps, fruit peels), plant trimmings, saw dust, soil, cocopeat, peatmoss, coffee grounds, teas and egg shells.
We discourage composting dairy, oil, meat, cooked food, diseased plants, animal droppings, glossy/coated paper at home as these will lead to bad smells in your compost bin.
Your compost should not have a foul smell. A bad smell may mean it is too wet or unsuitable material is being composted (dairy, oil, cooked food etc.)
Drain out the liquid and add more brown matter into the pile. Turning the compost pile frequently will help.
After 2-3 months your compost should be ready to use. Without turning (cold composting), it will be ready in up to 6 months.
You may continue composting without bokashi powder. Bokashi powder will help to speed up the process, and should you wish to continue adding it to your pile you can purchase a bag online.
