Fermentation is a testament to the deep intelligence of age-old processes, the wonders of collaboration with nature, and the eagerness of microorganisms to thrive. Discover traditions of preservation through bacterial collaboration in this hands-on class at The Armstrong Farm in Sussex County, NJ.
Learn how to make an array of fizzy beverages! Discover the continuum of fermentation processes when we encourage microbial growth with the simple addition of sugars and starter cultures. Learn about unique yeasts and bacteria and their roles in creating nutritious and delicious beverages. This course will cover kombucha, ginger beer, and water kefir.
We will ferment with flora local to Sussex County and students will bring starter cultures home to begin more projects at home.
