Shig is a Bokashi Master, mostly practicing his craft in
NYC and who now committed to helping the Jersey City community learn more about Bokashi. He collects food waste at all of SJC Green Drinks + ART & SJC Community Dinner events.
He initiated the Bokashi program, for fermenting
food waste, at El Sol Brilliante Community Garden
on the Lower East Side of Manhattan which
includes participation and support from local
residents, 2 schools and a restaurant." Just Last
year alone, El Sol fermented 2 tons of food waste
and made their own rich soil for growing more food
and healthy plants. Shig is expanding the
deployment of Bokashi throughout the NYC
community garden network and is exploring the
use of Bokashi as a remediation tactic for toxic soil
in garden and brown field sites. Shig will be
teaching about how to ferment food waste and how
to make inoculated bran, a fermentation starter,
for home school and community gardens.
