Hello,
I now live in apartment and have no large compost/humanure to turn. I have heard of Japanese fermentation compost. I believe it was called Bokashi. Does anyone here use it or a similar compost that wold work for small apartment space? I feel so sad about throwing scrap down drain I hope to find way to compost and have kitchen herbs.
Thank you

Regardless of scale, kitchen scraps are best dealt with using verimiculter, worm bins. There are many commercial and diy bin plans on the next and youtube. They can be sized to scale for your space. Admittedly, I don't know much about fermented compost; but the little I have read seems to be way over complicated compared to a simple worm bin.
