Created at the leading-edge of the fermentation, community, and sustainability conversation, Fermentation on Wheels adds a unique dimension to the advancement of healthy, resilient food cultures, nationwide.

Fermentation on Wheels and its founder, Tara Whitsitt, empower communities with a sustainability-based lifestyle and inspire with a rich array of gatherings— potlucks, starter-culture swaps, workshops, and farm, school and community visits. We emphasize an accessible, do-it-yourself approach to fermentation practice and education.

Based out of a 40–foot nomadic art space and in our seventh year of operation, the project is now rooted in the Kittatinny Valley of New Jersey. Fermentation on Wheels is branching out into other educational forms such as dinner parties, illustrated zines, and a community supported ferments program. Tara is also planning a fermentation tour for next winter and spring (2020/2021).

The original fermentation bus has outlived its traveling days. It’s time to right-size so we can travel further and faster, to new destinations, and have lower environmental impact. If you would like to support our upcoming travels, you can make a tax-deductible donatation on Fractured Atlas.
