Citizen science and bokashi - join the workshop!

Hey bokashi maker, would you like to take a deeper look into your kitchen's bokashi bin? Have you ever wondered about the microbial composition of your bokashi? Are you curious to know, if bokashi has an impact on the biodiversity of your home? Can bokashi even have health effects? Have you conducted your own experiments with bokashi? Come and share your experiences and questions with us and open new pathways for future research!
