Fermentation on Wheels will join the Health Fair at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 3rd, sharing the joys of fermentation with a sauerkraut demo at 11:30am as well as starter culture swap* and more food fermentation education throughout the day. What does that mean? After you get your veggies, fruits, and grains at the farmers market, swing by the bus and learn how to ferment them!
*Attendees may bring starter cultures of their own for exchange & discussion as well as bring an empty jar and take a culture home from the workshop. If you would like to take a starter culture home with you, please bring something to trade or $10 (per starter culture).
Fermentation on Wheels is a grassroots project that brings fermentation education to communities of all ages and backgrounds and inspires with a school bus that has been converted into a fermentation lab, library, and workshop space. The project’s founder, Tara Whitsitt, organizes events nationwide to bridge communities and restore a genuine fascination in local, traditionally-preserved foods. By traveling the country, connecting consumers to local farmers, and teaching fermentation, she hopes to emphasize the importance of strong, sustainable food practices and values.
