To start indoor composting: Cover the bottom of the All Seasons Indoor Composter bucket with a layer of either All Seasons Bokashi or Liquid Bokashi. Place fresh food scraps in the bucket, thoroughly coating every layer of scraps with a layer of Bokashi compost starter. Close the lid tightly after every use to ensure an anaerobic (oxygen-free/closed-air) environment. Oxygen can cause odor during the composting process. Make sure to drain liquid frequently to prevent putrefaction.
Once your bucket is filled to capacity, bury the bucket contents—your compost—directly in soil—or let the food waste continue to ferment for two weeks, draining the liquid compost tea every 1-3 days. Then transfer compost from your bucket to your garden or planter. Allow at least two more weeks for the fermentation process to continue in the soil before planting your favorite veggies, flowers, trees, or more.
Depending on the size of your household, you may find it useful to use a system of two indoor composting buckets.

Place your compost bin under your kitchen sink or in any other convenient, indoor location. The All Seasons Indoor Composter is not designed or suited for outdoor use, as extreme temperatures can change or halt the fermentation process.
