2018 has brought forth an exciting collection of monthly talk series held on the farm. These nights have included and involved local and young regenerative farmers, innovative people working in food, food waste and sustainability in fun/friendly discussions and panels. Our goal is to create a community of mindful humans through connectivity and shared experience. We believe that real-life interaction, conversations and local Australian stories will allow us to do so.
So what's the juice on all this fermenting hype? Hear from panelists who ferment their way through a variety of ingredients and end up with wildly different products - krauts, lacto ferments, pickles, breads, beers, and of course that mysterious wonder beverage kombucha. We're planning for our final Farm Chat for the year to be extra festive. You'll learn new things about the magic of fermentation, how important it is to health as well as for processing abundance at the end of a harvest, and hopefully go away pretty keen on trying some countertop fermenting yourself.
Provided: First Young Henry's beer on arrival + snacks
Bring: Coins for beer donations that will go towards resources for our education program.
