We, my partner Bertil and I, live in Sweden and run the EM Bokashi website for Swedish customers. It’s a webshop and information centre in one, you can visit it on www.bokashi.se.
Our motive for working so hard to spread the word about Bokashi is that we genuinely believe it is A Good Thing. A simple concept that works with nature instead of against us, and that can help us be more climate smart in our homes and more ecological in our gardens. We’d love to see all Sweden stop throwing away food and doing something good with it instead! Reinvesting it in the soil where it belongs.
Sweden is a great country to live. It’s cold and dark and often quite miserable in the winters but when summer comes it’s harder to imagine anywhere nicer you could be. And that’s saying something given I’m a native of New Zealand, godsown country and one of the pioneers in the Bokashi field.
We have a lot of ideas to share and we think its fun to work with something that is part of the solution rather than part of the problem. Please leave us a message here if there’s anything you’d like us to take up here on the blog!
