Did you know that the human gut contains more bacteria than human cells in the rest of your body by a factor of 10, and can weigh between 5-7 pounds?
Or that over half of the nerve cells in our body reside in our gut?
We've all been told to "trust our guts" but what we may not realize is just how wise, and deserving of attention, those inside voices may be.
JOIN Ari Rosenberg, passionate activist and urban farmer, for a fun, hands-on workshop where will find out how to keep those organisms in our gut happy.
Learn about the amazing healing powers of fermentation and make delicious kimchi and sauerkraut to take home. Engage in conversation about the art of preservation in reducing waste and creating a more symbiotic, sustainable world.
