***Join us after the workshop for a Vegetarian Potluck - Please bring a vegetarian/vegan dish to share with the tribe. Organic, local and vegetarian dishes are encouraged.

This workshop will empower you, with hands on experience, to make your own fermented healthy foods at home which require no electricity and no refrigeration. We will explore the process of this ancient art, the many ways of flavoring with spices and how to easily incorporate fermented foods into your diet.

Everyone will leave with their own jar of delicious, nourishing fermented veggies, as well as the knowledge to properly store and care for them, and of course how to make lots more!

More: Fermentation of vegetables and plant matter is an ancient alchemical practice of breaking down plant cells in salt water to extract the highest form of nutrients and nourish the body with an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and probiotics. In this day where germaphobia is so prevalent, most of our food is pasteurized to no end. Thus we are losing culture, and culturing practice. This makes finding truly fermented foods rare and expensive. Fortunately it is easy, safe and inexpensive to make fermented foods at home.
