Learn how to make fermented foods and find out how these foods provide friendly micro-organisms for good gut flora, and why that is so important for you to improve digestion and eliminate toxins. It is also a great way to extend the useful life of your garden harvest.

This workshop will cover making kimchi, sauerkraut, cultured butter, pickling vegetables, growing a sourdough “mother” some fizzy drinks and a bit more besides.

There will be a variety of functional foods to taste and lunch will be provided. You will be able to take some things home with you so bring along 3×750 ml jars, 3x350ml jars, a sharp knife (for slicing cabbage), cutting board, apron and notebook.
