Bokashi Myanmar — the film!
Here we’ll share our projects with you as they happen. Small, medium and large. Urban, rural and in-between. Community and household. Farm, field and back alley. Bokashi in all shapes and forms!
Read about some of them here!
Kokkoya Organics is an urban farm in the outskirts of Yangon. Organic, run by a great team of women, and supplying chemical-free vegetables on subscription to families in Yangon.
Chu Chu is a design workshop, shop and cafe selling products made from plastic they recycle themselves. They are based in a sandy lane on the “other side of the river” in Yangon.
Doh Eain is an urban renewal project in downtown Yangon. They are refurbishing back alleys one by one, transforming them from trash heaps to places where the community can gather, kids can play, and people can grow vegetables and flowers.

Clean Yangon, Green Yangon is an initiative in downtown Yangon where volunteers clean up street corners one by one, picking up trash from sidewalks and roads. Symbolic but valuable.

An independent scientific study that compares traditional composting (oxidization) of manure with fermentation of manure using the bokashi method shows the latter has significant advantages. The carbon footprint is presented on page 17. The results from the two methods are…
Just now it’s too early for us to have any testimonials, but we hope to have some soon. When we start up for real, and have some runs on the board, we will publish your feedback here. Good old-fashioned honest feedback is what we’re looking for, so we can spread the message to others and make our project into the best it possibly can be.
