How can I combine lasagna composting with bokashi?

Bokashi fermented matter is considered "greens," it should be added in between layers of browns, such as fall leaves, straw or paper.

Traditional composting includes a balanced mix of »browns« and »greens«. Greens are materials rich in nitrogen or protein, such as grass clippings, vegetable and fruit scraps, coffee grounds, tea bags, trimmings from plants, eggshells, and so on. Those are the items that heat up the pile, as they promote the multiplication of microorganisms. Browns are carbon or carbohydrate-rich materials that are a source of food for the microorganisms and allow air to flow through the pile. They include fall leaves, straw, hay, corn stalks, paper, cotton fabric, and cardboard. Fermented organic waste is categorized as "greens", so it should be added between brown and green layers.
