Honolulu Pulse Covers Throw To Grow and Bokashi Buckets

Honolulu Pulse, powered by the Star Advertiser Newspaper just published a great article on our Throw To Grow fundraiser and Bokashi composting!


Ever heard of a Bokashi Bucket?

North Shore resident Jim DiCarlo, 31, is hoping to get one in your hands and explain how it works as part of his Throw to Grow Project. It’s all part of his mission to change the way the world thinks about waste.

A Bokashi Bucket is basically an anaerobic composting system which transforms food into rich, gardening soil. You throw food scraps into the bucket, sprinkle with a special “Bokashi mix” (made up of wheat bran infused with microorganisms), seal a lid on tight, and eventually it will all ferment.
