Want a convenient, easy and pretty much idiot-proof way to compost? Bokashi buckets and “zing” sawdust will help you get food waste out of your rubbish bin and turn it into a resource for your garden. Queenstown Lakes District Council will pay 50% of the start-up cost for Queenstown Lakes residents and rate-payers. So pop into Wanaka Wastebusters (or Shotover Garden Centre in Queenstown) and pick a starter kit up for $56. We’re open 9am-5pm every day.
For tips on how to use the Bokashi system, check out Dr Compost’s Youtube clip.
