This workshop is designed to recall some of the
knowledge of bygone days, where sustenance and nutrition relied on familiarity, skill, and careful
preparation. We will cover common edible and medicinal plants, plus some lichens and fungi that
grow right in our backyards. Both field forays & a cooking session will provide a taste
of what is out there. Be prepared to sample new foods from weeds to tree bark
to rock tripe.
The focus of this workshop will be helping you to create your own personal plan by working with case studies, storytelling, art, visualization and creative business problem solving systems. Ideally, you'll leave with an improved vision that will help you make your business more successful and rewarding.
In this workshop you will go on a guided tour through the basics of lacto-fermentation. Starting with learning the science behind fermentation and the health benefits of a diet rich in foods like sauerkraut and kimchi. Then participants will roll up their sleeves, start chopping veggies, and prepare their own ferments. We will provide guidance on ratios and flavor profiles enabling participants to create unique recipes themselves. Everyone will leave with a batch of their own lactofermented veggies and instructions on how to take it to completion.
