Just found an EM Teachers’ Manual

Just stumbled across this great guide to using Bokashi and EM in schools. A 37-page manual aimed at teachers to help start up a Bokashi-based composting project in the classroom. Maybe not everything is relevant to where you live, but it’s something I haven’t seen before and gives you a lot of ideas for practical implementation along with the background information to make the process credible. Some of the environmental facts would need updating, and obviously made relevant to whatever part of the world you’re in.

A great start though, don’t you think? If you’ve seen anything else along these lines, please post a comment. The more we can share this type of information the better.

Have you been involved in running a school project using Bokashi and EM? What worked well? What would you have differently? What did the kids think about it all? Love to hear!

Bokashi kids: LeFevre Kindergarten in Australia

Here at Le Fevre Kindergarten in South Australia the kids have been putting their leftover sandwiches and bananas into the Bokashi bin for 10 years. And growing their own fruit and veggies in these great raised beds.

I bet there’s many more lovely stories like this around, we’ll try and dig out a few more and share them here.
