As part of a series of Composting Workshops funded by a grant from the Boro President Scott Stringer’s office, the Morris Jumel Community Garden invites everyone to the following workshop.

Bokashi Food Waste Fermentation in Your Home & Garden

This workshop will cover the basics of how to ferment your food waste at home and in the garden. Unlike traditional composting, this system breaks down dairy, grains and meat in addition to all other food waste.

At this workshop Vandra Thorburn, of Vokashi, inc. will teach us how to prepare fermented wheat bran and how to set up your own system in your kitchen and/or garden.  Different stages of bokashi fermented food waste and bins will be on display.  Vokashi products will be for sale, including finished fermented bran for half price – $5 (in case you want to get started right away).

BBQ lunch will be provided (including vegan/vegetarian options)

This workshop is on Sunday May 22, 1pm, the Morris-Jumel Community Garden, 545-547 west 160th st (E of Amsterdam/St Nicholas aves) subway = C to 163rd or A to 168th.

Next workshop, Worm Composting, Saturday June 18th 1pm.
