This workshop is hands-on, taste bud-interactive, and take home.

About the Teacher:

Tara is a nomadic artist, educator, and food activist. Her passion for growing food, living communally, and teaching fermentation inspired the grassroots educational project Fermentation on Wheels in fall 2013. She’s traveled the country with Fermentation on Wheels since, teaching by-donation fermentation classes and hosting potlucks that focus on accessibility, creativity, and bringing people together.

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.
