  • COMPOST ACCELERATOR: Growing Organic’s Kashi Blend helps you compost your food scraps, including meat and dairy, faster than standard composting methods. By the end, you can amend your soil with nutrient-rich bokashi compost.
  • MICROBIAL SOIL BUILDER: Bokashi is full of beneficial bacteria. These bacteria aid in breaking down nutrients in the soil for bigger plants and larger harvests. Simply top dress your garden or indoor plants with this specialty soil additive to start gaining the benefits.
  • ODOR ELIMINATOR: The microorganisms within bokashi not only help breakdown food quickly for your compost but can also help eliminate odors such as from your cat’s litter box or chicken coop.
  • HOW IT WORKS: Bokashi incorporates the principles of inoculated fermentation. The inputs used to make bokashi have loads of enzymes and antioxidants that the beneficial bacteria thrive off of. Thus, leaving a product packed full of beneficial microorganisms ready to breakdown nutrients. Whether you use it in the soil, compost food waste, or to reduce pet waste odors.
  • ZERO WASTE PACKAGING: Growing Organic’s specialty bokashi is packaged in a 100% organic cotton sack with a compostable interior liner. This ensures that nothing goes to waste when you purchase from us!

    This QUALITY, handcrafted Kashi Blend is beyond amazing!! The diversity of fermented grains and micronutrients make this an amazing all around probiotic top dressing additive to aid in the breakdown and delivery of nutrients and minerals. The chickens and dogs absolutely love it as well. The smell alone is enough for someone to want to know more.

    Nice packaging and yeasty bread dough smell. I have only applied it once but there’s no reason not to experience the magic that others have. The soil manufacturer (Detroit Nutrient Company) said it is an excellent addition to any living soil grow.

    I can see a difference in a sheer amount of mycellium growing in the bokashi bucket compared to the Ebay one. It just exploded with white fuzz! This bokashi is a winner to me.

    I have tried a few other bokashi brands at this point, and this seems to be the best quality thus far. I like the smell, which reminds me of fresh bread. I also like that it has various grains as well. Kinda makes me think it’s more like a sprouted seed product meets bokashi. I threw some on some soil that has plant life in it already, and I also threw some in a soil/green waste bin, and the bokashi already has some mycelium forming.
    Very pleased with this purchase.

FAQs

How do I apply bokashi?

Kashi Blend is best applied as a top dress. Add about 1/3 cup of Kashi Blend per 15-gallon soil container. If you’re running a smaller container, use a little less or a little more for a larger pot. Kashi Blend is very forgiving so you won’t notice any burn if you go a little heavy.

Can I make tea with it?

You can make a tea with Kashi Blend but it was designed to be top dressed. If you’d like to make a tea, simply steep about 1cup per 5 gallons of water. You can add air and molasses if you’d like, but keep the brew time short (under 10 hours).

Additionally, you can steep Kashi Blend in water for a few days with no oxygen or molasses. If you’re adding this to a compost tea, add the last few hours of your brew.

How long is the storage life?

One year.

Why am I seeing white mold/growth?

This is normal and what we expect to happen in the soil and your composting bucket(s).

What’s in the product?

We add the full ingredient list to our labels and omit nothing. Kashi Blend consists of rice bran, wheat bran, insect frass, soybean meal, camelina meal, gypsum, whole malted barley, charged/inoculated biochar, trace minerals, molasses, and multiple species of lactic acid bacteria.

Can I add this to my worm bin?

Kashi Blend is a great addition to any worm bin. They seem to make it into quick food and enjoy coming to the surface for it.

Can I add this to my thermal compost pile?

Yes. Kashi Blend is considered a compost accelerator and can help bring temps up faster in a thermophilic composting setup.

My animal got into the Kashi Blend. What should I do?

Don't panic. Simply keep an eye on them as they may need to use the bathroom more frequently for the next 12 - 24 hours depending on how much they ate, but they’ll be just fine. Although this product is not animal feed, our chickens and dogs sure love it. The lactic acid bacteria used in the fermentation is a probiotic and many of the species are the same as what’s found in yogurt.

Is the product veganic friendly?

All of Kashi Blend's products are sourced from vegan sources, including the lactic acid bacteria. The product does contain organic insect frass though.

Is there anything that shouldn’t be composted with Kashi Blend?

Excessively oily or liquid food should not be added to the bucket, as this will drown the microbial population. You are able to add meat, cheese and dairy to the bucket without an issue, however, remember that what you put into the compost bucket is what you get out of it, so be mindful of what you are placing in the bucket to create the most nutrient-dense compost possible.

How do I know when my compost is ready?

After burying the contents of your bucket outside, you should wait four to siz weeks before checking if the compost is ready to use. Once this time has passed, you can dig into the area where it was buried and see if any remaining food scraps remain unbroken down. If there are no food scraps, you are ready to use it. If there are some remaining, we recommend burying and waiting a little longer.

I read that Kashi Blend can be used to eliminate odors. How does this work and how do you recommend using the product in this way? (Is there a certain type of container to use or just sprinkle it around? Can it be used around kids/pets/food prep areas/in the yard/etc.?)

Kashi Blend is a wonderful odor eliminator and can be use safely around pets and children. To use this product as an odor eliminator, here is how you can use it for various animals:

Cats: Sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons in the litter box each week, or as needed. The microorganisms in the Kashi Blend will speed up the breakdown process of the waste, which reduces the smell

Chickens (or other farm animals): If you have farm animals and their area seems to get stinky quick, Kashi Blend can help! Simply throw a handful down in the coop/pen. The microorganisms will help breakdown the excrements rapidly, thus reducing the smell. Plus, your farm animals will find it to be a delicious treat, which helps clean out their digestive tract and further eliminate odor from the area.

How should I dispose of unused/expired Kashi Blend?

Kashi Blend should stay good on the shelf for up to one year. However, if you feel it is no longer viable, you can simply dump it into your compost bin or outside in the grass.

I accidentally used too much Kashi Blend. What could happen to my compost/plants, and what should I do now? (ie: reasons to avoid overuse)

Generally speaking, you can’t add too much Kashi Blend. However, you do want to avoid adding excessive amounts to your soil or compost bin to avoid waste and provide other nutrients to not be outcompeted.

If you are growing seedlings, be sure not to add excessive amounts, as the mycelium that forms could outcompete the seed starts resulting in no seedlings at all.
