Revitalize your garden

Welcome to Southern Oregon Bokashi, where the alchemy of nature and science converge to foster flourishing gardens and sustainable agricultural practices. Rooted in the scenic Applegate Valley, our journey began in 2010 with a simple yet profound mission: to propel the evolution of organic agriculture to new heights. Our founder, Evan Short, embarked on this green venture with a vision to provide both hobbyist and commercial farmers as well as horticulturalists with premium microbial inoculants locally crafted in Southern Oregon.
