Description

Join Fermentation on Wheels at Grow a Pear Farm for our final event of the year, closing out a 2 year tour of our circumnavigation of the United States of America!

We'll kick off the day at 2:30pm with a Vegetable Fermentation Workshop outside. Tara will teach the simple tradition of preserving vegetables through bacterial collaboration using local, seasonal ingredients. Tara will also share the benefits of fermentation and how you can creatively & fearlessly ferment in your own kitchen. This workshop targets novice through intermediate students, offering a thorough overview of the art of fermented vegetables.

After the workshop, at 5pm, Tara will share the bus with students and friends. Attendees are encouraged to bring starter cultures for exchange & discussion as well as bring an empty jar and take a culture home from the workshop. If you would like to take a starter culture home with you, please bring something to trade or $10 (per starter culture).

Join us for the ultimate fermented food themed potluck, starting at 6pm! Bring some of your own fermented beverages, dishes or cultures (kombucha SCOBYs, sourdough starter, kefir grains, yogurt, etc.) Bring non-fermented dishes, too! Bring lots of love!

Can't wait to see you.
