My new method is to layer in different nutrients. I put in rotten fruit, 1 cup of whole wheat flour, worm compost, regular/leaf compost, rotten wood for fungal mycelium, and crushed oyster shells. Then I pour into it enough urine to soak it. I only soak it for about a minute, to make sure the "housing" is being filled by nutrients. Then I pour the liquid out and store it until the next day. I keep pouring it in and out once per day. The idea is that I want the biochar to be nutrified and heavily oxygenated.
What is interesting to me about bokashi and other anaerobic ferments is the idea that they are offering diversity of micro beasties, and that these anaerobic friends can be, well, friends.
I can't speak on Elaine Ingham's nor Redhawk's ideas about deep soil and anaerobic amendments. Kind of intriguing, really.
Ya the more I think about I could imagine it being a very useful tool in areas with heavy clay soil. You might rip some lines as deep as you can and drop anaerobically prepared char down there and then proceed with working the surface. Definitely an area of interest, I've never actually heard of anyone doing it so maybe its genius, maybe it's just a whacky interwebs idea
I wonder if there is value to having some inoculated both ways?
