Fermentation on Wheels in Oakland!
October 28, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Come visit the Fermentation on Wheels bus in Oakland at PLACE for Sustainable Living this Saturday! Bring fermented goodies from home to share AND taste an array of delicious ferments from the bus (miso, jun, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi). Hang out on the funkiest bus on the planet, that has also traveled the country once over, spurring conversation on the intersection of fermentation, community, and sustainability.
Bring starter cultures of your own for exchange and discussion. All Fermentation on Wheels events are free and open to the public, however, if you would like to take home a culture, we ask you please bring something to swap* or $10 per culture.
Tara has also recently published a book. It will be for sale $25 in cash or $27 in card. If you are curious about the book, there is an event dedicated to it the next evening in San Francisco: Author Talk: Tara Whitsitt of Fermentation on Wheels (note: the bus will not be present)
Fermentation on Wheels is a charitable grassroots organization 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. By traveling the country, visiting farmers and connecting them with consumers, Fermentation on Wheels hopes to make a powerful statement and emphasize the importance of strong, sustainable food practices and values.
*The swappable doesn’t need to be a starter culture!
