Tara Whitsitt of Fermentation on Wheels will hold a hands-on workshop on vegetable fermentation at Resilience Hub, in which she will teach & prepare a wild ferment with local, seasonal ingredients.
Whitsitt will also hold a brief forum on starter cultures and give a tour of the bus. Attendees may bring starter cultures of their own for exchange & discussion as well as bring an empty jar and take a culture home from the workshop. We ask for a minimum $1 donation for culture take home.
Fermentation on Wheels is a community from Eugene, OR that provides free food education and inspires people through workshops, literature, and visual arts projects that raise food awareness and teach fermentation. The community organizes potlucks and teaches fermentation in a school bus that has been converted into a creative kitchen and workshop space. They are now touring the United States, harvesting produce alongside small-scale farmers and holding workshops on the importance of fermentation and micro-agriculture.
