Fermenting by Season

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. To learn more or get involved, visit their website at www.fermentationonwheels.com.
This workshop is being hosted by Cooperative Fermentation, Frinklepod Farm and the Resilience Hub. Cooperative Fermentation (www.cooperativefermentation.org) is working to democratize the food system through supporting people to create cooperatives in food and farming. Frinkelpod Farm (www.frinklepodfarm.com) is a diverse, CSA-based organic farm that is influenced by permaculture practices and has a farm store in Arundel. The Resilience Hub (www.resiliencehub.org) hosts the Portland Permaculture Group and supports a variety of resilience-based project including the Portland Trading Post and community Permablitzes.

    On Friday, Fermentation on Wheels will be at Frinklepod Farm in Arundel for a culture swap and potluck. If folks are looking to exchange cultures (or get some), I'd encourage you to come down to that event. And it will be a delicious potluck of fermented and non fermented foods. I'll be sharing spring kraut with the end of last years cabbage, rhubarb and parsnips, a few fruit wines, a lightly fermented strawberry rhubarb soda, and rhubarb salsa. The potluck is at 6pm on Friday (it's also on the Permaculture Meet-up too). Frinklepod is 30 minutes south of Portland and the weather is supposed to clear off for a beautiful Friday potluck out on the farm.

    I also am looking for a kefir starter to culture young coconut water kefir. I bought lacto-fermented dill pickles at Whole Foods this week, would the juice from that be a starter for more pickles- I could bring that to share

  • Dave T.

    Anybody looking for a particular culture? I'm on the lookout for viili, piima, or water kefir, and I could offer yogurt, kefir, kombucha, rye starter, or sourdough starter.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
