Hiro's Bokashi Club #4

Meetings Events
Saturday, July 6, 2019

Your MUST RSVP by Tuesday, July 3!
Open to the Public!

Special guest: Nobuko Miyamoto, leading a short FadangObon dance/song workshop!

Composting made easy—and less smelly—for your home, garden, balcony, or business! Learn how to compost using the Okinawan tradition of Bokashi, an anaerobic process that uses a special additive to ferment kitchen waste—including meat and dairy—into a healthy soil and nutrient-rich fertilizer for your plants. This method uses a mix of microorganisms that combat food rotting bacteria (and rotting odors), increase the speed of decomposition and enhances plant growth.

Little Tokyo Bokashi Club is now Hiro's Bokashi Club, in honor of our Bokashi mentor and dear friend Hiroyuki Tateuchi (1948–2019).


  • Workshop is free!
  • Bag of Bokashi: $2, cash only

Facilitated by SLT Food Coordinator Amy Honjiyo.
