Sustainable Living: Introduction to Fermenting

Fermenting is one of the oldest methods of preserving food and enriches it by the action of bacteria and fungi. It is truly a living food!

Fermented foods increase the diversity of our internal ecosystem – gut flora – by introducing and feeding a wide range of beneficial organisms. Think about fermenting as packing health into a jar.

In this two hour workshop you will be joined by Margaret Mossakowska, a sustainability educator, who will run a short presentation about the benefits of fermenting and about making ferments for health and beauty.

She will then run a practical workshop where you will make a jar of delicious sauerkraut to take away with you.
