4) What is the Bokashi and how do you use it? by Mixua

30% of our residual waste is organic waste that can be composted, but this is often not easy if you don’t have a garden. Fortunately, Bokashi offers a solution. With this method, you can give your residual waste a second life without unpleasant odours or trouble from flies, in a small space.

Moreover, you can compost many more types of food than is possible with a worm bin or garden compost. Mixua will gladly explain what it is and how it exactly works. Afterwards, you can get to work right away. Only available for companies or organizations as teambuilding or for events.

6) Fermentation for beginners by De Groene Stadshut

Fermentation is one of the oldest ways to preserve food. Fermented vegetables contain many good bacteria that stimulate our intestinal flora. Moreover, they are more nutritious than the original product because the nutrients can be better absorbed by our body. During this workshop, you will discover for example how to ferment carrots or how to make sauerkraut.
