Make it Ferment - Culturing Gut Health

Sun May 7, 09:30 - Sun May 7, 14:30

Joshua Tree Organics


Whether it's the ancient Mongols and their sauerkraut, the ancient Indians and their pre-dinner lassi yoghurt drink, the Russians and their milk keffir, or the Koreans and their kimchi, fermented foods have been around for ages. Extolled for its plethora of health benefits through the action of beneficial bacteria, it's long been known that ferments unlock important nutrients in foods, improves flavour, optimizes your immune system, detoxifies your body and is critical to a holistic approach to health and food security.
Come share in this collaborative course as we explore:
  • Ferment basics
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Sourdough
  • Kombucha
  • Keffir and keffir cheese
  • Kimchi
  • Sauerkraut, and
  • Effective Micro-organisms
This is a shared learning and practical workshop where we'll get hands on making all of the above, leaving you with enough practical experience to go home and start making your own ferments. Participants will also receive cultures of all of the above (where necessary), the cost of which is included in your ticket price.

Cost per person is R300.

In the spirit of transparency, please see this link for a breakdown of our estimated costs.
