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.
Shig is a Bokashi Master, practicing his craft in NYC.
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.
