Intro to Fermentation

One of the oldest, safest ways of preserving food is to ferment it. Not only does it allow you to catch and store nutrition while it’s in abundance for use in leaner times, but it can be achieved in a wide range of lo-tech ways with very little financial input, and fermented foods have been proven to increase gut and mental health. 

This free face-to-face workshop will take you through some of the simplest and most effective ways to ferment different types of foods. This is a fabulous session for people wanting to get into ‘homesteading’ or permaculture living, but who don’t have capacity to grow much of their own food just yet. Includes examples of differently fermented foods; a display of useful books and resources; and a hands-on element where you make your own ferment.

Join permaculture and sustainability educator, Anna The Urban Nanna, to learn about the science behind fermenting food, and have a go at making your own fresh ferment to take home.
