Join us at Frinklepod Farm for a potluck and culture exchange with Fermentation on Wheels. Bring some of your own fermented dishes or cultures (kombucha SCOBYs, sourdough starter, kefir grains, yogurt, etc.) to share and swap with other fermenters. This potluck is open to everyone from expert fermenters to interested beginners. You are also more than welcome to bring complimentary non-fermented dishes.
This event is free and open to the public, however, if you would like to take home a culture, we ask you please bring a donation.
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.
