BOKASHI- is a lot faster than traditional composting and works in an entirely different way. Instead of rotting, bokashi ferments food waste, then breaks it down into enzymes and amino acids directly usable by plant roots. The fermentation stage takes about two weeks, and the composting phase takes between two to four weeks. (Ann Lovejoy-http://www.seattlepi.com/nwgardens/355605_lovejoy20.html)
