Event description
A full day of foraging and fermentation at Wheaton River Gardens*

About this event

In this 6 hours hands-on workshop for all levels, focus will be on fermenting with local ingredients. In the morning, we'll be learning the basics of lactic-acid fermentation with the brine pickling technique, using vegetables we harvest together from the gardens. We will be discussing specificities related to fermenting in the north and food sustainability. This first part will be followed by a farm lunch catered by Shiela Alexandrovich, from Wheaton River Gardens. After lunch, we'll head into the forest to harvest ingredients for our afternoon fermentation, a wild boreal soda. We'll be learning how to build and maintain wild yeasts cultures to use as a base for fermented drinks and provide basic instructions for inoculation, and guidelines for successful second fermentation.

Participants bring their own knife – everything else is included. Mask is required for parts of the workshop. All activities will be outdoors and safety measures will be in place.**
