This is a FREE event hosted by City Folk's Farm Shop. We've been delving into making our own fermented food products recently, and it sounds like a great opportunity to meet and share with others who do as well. We'll probably be bringing some dairy kefir grains, and possibly some dried herbs or other goodies.
From the store website:
Bring in your cultures, home-fermented food, and home-made edibles to swap with others. Kombucha scobys, vinegar mothers, kefir grains, and sourdough starter will be popular. Bring along samples of the finished product or excess sauerkraut, sourdough bread, or kimchi to swap too. If you are not fermenting yet, bring home-made or home-dried foods like canned goods or dried herbs.
Janine Degitz Harris will be onsite to swap some of her favorite cultures and share her fermenting expertise. She has studied with Sandor Katz and will be available for discussion and questions concerning fermenting and its health benefits. Meet her at the shop from 1-2.
In this simple, friendly event, we will gather to look at the wares and make offers to one another. Please label your foods and be ready to share contact information and recipes.

In addition, they recommend sharing what you'll be bringing (if anything) on their Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/526718310672819
Depending on who is coming (and from where) we can arrange to carpool in order to make parking/transportation easier.
