Join us at the sunny greenhouses to learn about lacto-fermentation and SKOBYs. We will be mixing piccalilli, creating flavours for our own signature hot sauce and experimenting with kombucha. You will take home two jars of vegetable ferments and kombucha SKOBY, and be confident to set up your own fermentation station at home. There will be a lot of tasting alongside making.
If you can bring three large (c.500ml) clean, recycled jars with you, please do. If not, we have kilner jars we can supply at cost and some recycled jars for free.
Half of the workshop proceeds will go to the Greenhouses to support our work and the other half towards fundraising for Jelena’s nephew Jude’s operation to help him learn how to walk. You can read about little Jude and cerebral palsy here.
