Come learn the ancient art of fermentation! It’s a way to preserve food, harvest probiotics, spread food cultures, and get creative with your food. In this introductory class, we will cover the basics of the fermentation process, taste homemade ferments, and you will make and take home a mason jar of your first vegetable ferment! Your gut is already thanking you. The class is based on the teachings of Sandor Katz’ book Wild Fermentation, an essential reference for budding home fermenters. This class will use locally grown produce whenever possible, meaning that the vegetables we ferment in class will change by the season! We have fermented cabbage, beets, carrots, daikon radish, green beans, turnips, mustard greens, and more. These nutritious goods have been flavored with dill, fennel, oranges, garlic, and ginger. Come see what’s in season and make your own combination!

Houston, 77030 United States

It is time for the city government of Houston to see how diverse we are. The grand claim was made that we are a "welcoming city," but the treatment of the local homeless community, gentrification, lack clarity on where our elected leaders stand on Trump's policies and of course the issue of anti Blackness need to be addressed.

We are not one big happy family until justice is extended to all!

WE WILL MARCH UP FANIN FROM HERMANN PARK TO NRG PARK. RAIN OR SHINE.
