Reviews

I have to thank you for writing this book Adam - FINALLY we have a well-researched, comprehensive guide to bokashi composting. I've already changed a few of my techniques based on your advice and my bokashi is decomposing faster as a result. Your information is thorough and your writing style is clear and refreshingly humble. You've really created THE step-by-step guide for making bokashi, and people lucky enough to pick up this book will have created a beautiful microbial inoculant for their gardens and houseplants in no time. -- Phil Nauta, author of Building Soils Naturally As we reach our teens in the 21st Century, it's clear that we must explore more and newer ways of reducing our waste output. We have already achieved great reductions in what enters urban landfill sites, and more efficient recycling. But what can we do in our own homes -- in our urban condos and apartment buildings? In this upbeat, informative book, Adam Footer reveals the Bokashi composting option, and shows us how to further reduce our food waste, turning it back into the Earth and enriching the soil as we do. His explanation of bacterial culturing is clear and simply stated. Whether you purchase a home Bokashi kit or build your own, following Footer's foolproof instructions, this is the manual for you. -- Mark Macdonald, West Coast Seeds
