Trash is not an exciting subject. It stinks, it takes room in your kitchen, you pay a stranger to haul it away. But in regenerative design waste or trash are helpful to creating new things. Composted foods can tremendously help your gardens thrive and some methods of composting such as Bokashi allow you to compost everything you eat from fruits to meat to eggs and dairy products.
So this morning as I was emptying my counter top Bokashi compost into my bigger one outside, I stopped to admire it for a minute and remember how beautiful regenerative design can benefit from things we think are ugly or smelly or both. I stopped and took a picture and was thankful for this trash that will be a treasure for my soil and my future plants and really took a minute to write this down to remember it next time I smell my smelly trash.
