Fermentation Workshop: Vege & Dairy


This one-day Fermentation Workshop is part of a series of practical sessions linked to the Matakana Modular PDC presented by Trish Allen and Guenther Andraschko. Anyone is welcome to attend the Practical Workshop days to gain hands-on skills related to permaculture practices.

Trish Allen & Marianna Van Ginkel are co-presenting this hands-on workshop on fermentation of both vegetables and dairy.

In this practical workshop you will learn the principles of making fermented foods in your own kitchen. Learn how to make classic sauerkraut, kimchi, beet kavass and other vege ferments.

Get your head around the magic of SCOBYs for Kombucha, grains for Kefir, mothers for vinegar and take some starters home. Learn how to make simple, tasty, traditional raw cheeses.

See and taste the possibilities and get inspired as you learn about the health benefits and how you can boost your immune system.

Cost: $95 (includes morning and afternoon tea and starters to take home).
