Learn Bokashi Composting
for Kitchen Waste

August 31, 2017, 7 - 8:30 p.m.
Euless City Hall, 201 N. Ector Dr.

By now composting is something we've all heard about, and maybe even something you'd like to try. Maybe you're trying to go green but don't have the space for a compost bin. That's where bokashi composting comes in handy. Basically a system of fermentation, the method has its roots in the Korean pickling tradition. Bokashi composting makes it possible for city-dwellers and anyone else with little space outside to lighten their environmental footprint by composting food waste. This method also allows you to compost oily foods and meat scraps that don't belong in an outdoor compost heap.

[Daniel Cunningham]Speaker Daniel Cunningham with Texas A&M Agrilife Research will teach participants about this newer composting practice. Each participant will receive their own bokashi bucket and bran, which contains essential microorganisms, so they can immediately begin bokashi composting.

If you would like a bucket and bran, please make a reservation with Betsy Deck at 817-685-1821 or bdeck@eulesstx.gov.
