The natural composting process from collecting to structuring, mixing and maturing normally takes one year. We can speed it up by adding effective microorganisms, such as the ones found in the Bokashi bran
powder (or biogenous powder). If we dampen the pile of organic matter so that it contains about 35 per cent moisture, mix in the powder and cover it with straw, the compost will be ready in two months. If we are structuring a compost heap with green and brown layers, we can speed up the composting process by sprinkling the Bokashi bran
(or biogenous powder) on top of every organic material layer. The compost will be ready in three months, and the lower layers can be taken and used as quickly as you want.
