ferment change 4

"On your mark, get set, go!"

For me, Ferment Change started with a doughnation. Year two, the party grew to a few hundred, workshops multiplied, and the Tour de Ferment was born. Year three, the party grew some more, the workshops continued to inspire yet more ferment in the community, and "le Tour" became even longer. This year, who knows? Bigger and better, that is for sure. But considering the nature of the beast, it is what you put into it.

So, feel like learning how to ferment some sauerkraut, kombucha, or brined vegetables? Come on down to the Ecology Center this Friday night (7-9pm) for a free workshop! Directions and more info can be found here.

Can't make the first one? Enjoy the workshop with Sandor Katz at the North Oakland Farmers' Market on Saturday May 14th. Check out more info here.

Feel like tasting a ton of different ferments, and/or perhaps sharing some of your home fermented items with other passionate fermented folk? Maybe you missed out on a workshop, or are hoping to have a little more one on one time with Sandor? Make sure to make it to the Humanist Hall on Sunday May 15th. Check out details here.

Love riding your bike on a nice afternoon while enjoying various styles of homebrew, and meeting a bunch of like-minded people? Join us on May 22nd for a tour of 8 different stops where you will enjoy beer, wine, mead, cider, whatever the hosts have brewed or hauled out of their archives. Check out info at the Ferment Change site or drop me a line at geodylan at comcast dot net to rsvp for the ride.

Oh, and I beat that rock.
