Wild Vegetable Fermentation Workshop and Culture Swap
Tara Whitsitt of Fermentation on Wheels will hold a vegetable fermentation workshop at the Chase Near Eastside Legacy Center, teaching the simple tradition of preserving foods through bacterial collaboration using local, seasonal ingredients. Whitsitt will share the benefits of fermentation and how you can creatively & fearlessly ferment in your own kitchen. This workshop targets novice through intermediate students, offering a thorough overview of the art of lacto-fermented vegetables.
There will also give a brief introduction on starter cultures (sourdough, kombucha, dairy kefir, etc.) and tour of the bus. Attendees may bring starter cultures of their own for exchange & discussion as well as bring an empty jar and take a culture home from the workshop.
If you would like to take a starter culture home with you, please bring something to trade or $10 (per starter culture). There is a suggested $10 donation for this workshop, but donating less or more is completely up to you. All donations support the continuation of Fermentation on Wheels Midwest tour.
Fermentation on Wheels
Fermentation on Wheels is a community from Eugene, OR that provides free food education and inspires people through workshops, literature, and visual arts projects that raise food awareness and teach fermentation. The community organizes potlucks and teaches fermentation in a school bus that has been converted into a creative kitchen and workshop space. They are now touring the United States, harvesting produce alongside small-scale farmers and holding workshops on the importance of fermentation and micro-agriculture.
