Mary Tingey from ‘A Place of Learning’ in Christchurch says;
"Some clients of mine on The Simple Organic Gardening Course used mainly bokashi for soil fertility and they were blown away by how their plants grew. I still think that for city dwellers bokashi is the easiest quickest best form of creating soil fertility."

Zing Bokashi will be exhibiting at the Go Green Expo at the ASB Centre I Greenlane, Auckland on April 18/19.
If you are in Auckland, come and visit us at Stand M5 and check out the new Ensopet and Natureloo composting toilets.
I have been using bokashi mixed with my household food scraps for a number of years in my vege garden and was wondering if it provides enough nutrients on its own, or if the soil would benefit from adding earthzing or other nutrients that you recommend?
If you have a lack of nutrients in your garden the plants will let you know by showing signs. Of course an experienced eye is needed for this and the best course of action is to try and add to the soil all the plants growth requirements.
There a lot of good nutrients in the food waste and rention of nutrients will depend on a number of factors eg mining of nutrients via vegetable production and soil types. The addition of the bokashi food waste to your soil will only to be small areas and I would recommend the addition of other soil amendments to maintain soil fertility and organic matter levels across your total garden area.
- Accordingly I would firstly add calcium as lime flour or gypsum if clay type soils.
On a personal basis I also add seaweed meal annually in the spring together with a dressing of EarthZing.This is on top of an annual dressing of organic material - I use sheep manure and others are horse manure, grass clippings and/or compost.
As the bokashi food waste generated from a household in effect is only sufficient to cover a small area, EarthZing is a great addition to the soil as this effectively compliments the food waste added plus can be used on those areas where food waste has not been recently added.
- This is best added late autumn or early winter and thus acts to prevent leaching from winter rains.
