ABOUT

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 video, illustration, and a community supported ferments program while Tara devises a plan for the next fermentation tour.

We are slowing down to brainstorm, make art, and raise money. 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. Our goal is to raise $50,000 for the next vehicle and its build-out as well as the tour.

If you would like to support our upcoming travels, you can make a tax-deductible donatation on Fractured Atlas.
