When the summer bounty of berries has arrived, it's difficult to hold ourselves back from simply eating them all or making pies with them. But what about fermenting them? This class explores how to harness the flavor of berries through wild fermentation. Participants will walk away with a jar of lacto-fermented berries and some wild soda to ferment at home.

Pull into the fermentation station with Trevor Ring of Community Cultures in a 5 part fermentation series at the East End Food Co-op this spring/summer!

DIRECTIONS: this event will take place in the EEFC Conference Room. Please reference the map to locate the room. You'll need to enter through the Factory door by Gymkhana and the Fencing Club, as the Penn Avenue entrance locks at 5:00 PM.


Trevor Ring is the founder of Community Cultures. He has worked for numerous fermentation businesses, created various fermentation CSAs, and has taught fermentation workshops for nearly a decade. He is most excited about sharing his knowledge of fermentation and utilizing seasonal and regional ingredients to inspire his ferments. You can find his fermented sodas at the Bloomfield Market this summer!

Community Cultures aims to bring people together and connect them to the wonders of fermentation. Our goal is to make fermentation education accessible for all by emphasizing simple, affordable practices and techniques that don’t require special equipment. By teaching the essential role that microbes play in our lives, we can help you realize the magical potential of our food to transform us and the broader food system.
