Kimchi and Krauts Workshop
Discover the simple tradition of preservation through the local, collaborative micro-fora of vegetables. Fermented foods heal our bodies, celebrate age-old traditions, and promote healthy eco-systems. Learn about cost effective and simple tools that will help you get started at home in this hands-on fermentation class using locally sourced seasonal vegetables.About the teacher: Tara Whitsitt is an artist and food educator who organizes events nationwide to bridge communities and restore a genuine fascination in local, traditionally-preserved foods. She is also the founder of Fermentation on Wheels, the project that toured the United States for four years, teaching fermentation to and inspiring communities out of a school bus converted into a fermentation lab, library, and workshop space.
