This class will be a basic introduction to the fundamentals of fermenting food and beverages. This is the “what,” “why,” and “how” of fermentation.

We will cover a brief history, the benefits and the processes of fermented items, as well as taste a variety of ferments.

Students will get hands-on experience making a vinegar, sauerkraut, kombucha or kefir and will go home with a SCOBY culture or yogurt starter.


Fermentation is one of our oldest forms of food preservation. With little more than a container, some salt or culture, and the food of your choice, you can transform foods into flavorful, nutritional powerhouses and extend your harvest (without refrigeration if necessary!) As many people return to this ancient practice, we are reconnecting with our food, bodies, and planet in ways that benefit all three. Beginning Fermentation is the “what,” “why,” and “how” of fermentation. In this class students will:

• Learn the benefits of fermentation
