Hiro's Bokashi Workshop + Plant Swap

Hiro's Bokashi Workshop + Plant Swap



Sat, Aug 12, 2023 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Zenshuji Soto Mission
123 S. Hewitt St., Los Angeles, CA 90012


Learn the Okinawan tradition of Bokashi composting, an anaerobic process that uses a special additive to ferment kitchen waste, including meat and dairy, into healthy soil and nutrient-rich fertilizer for your plants.  As an optional bonus for this workshop and in an effort to build up our gardening-minded community, we're also inviting participants to bring a plant clipping/propagation, some seeds, or any extra garden-related plant item (extra tomatoes from your harvest, for example!) that you would like to exchange with others attending the workshop. Extra clippings/propagations may also be used in one of our Sustainable Little Tokyo pop-up gardens.

Participation in this workshop supports the ongoing work of Sustainable Little Tokyo's effort to combat food waste in Los Angeles!


  • The workshop is FREE, but $5-10 donations to Sustainable Little Tokyo are welcome.
  • Supplies to make 1 bag of bokashi: $5
  • Bokashi Kit (1 bucket set + bokashi supplies for 1 bag): $30
  • Sliding scale for low-income individuals.
  • We will be accepting cash or Venmo only.

Masks and social distancing are required. Please stay home if you are feeling unwell. The workshop will be indoors.
