Event Description

Sauerkraut with a holiday flair!

Learn how to make your own traditional, fermented sauerkraut in this Village Vancouver ElderGreens workshop with Alyssa Kohlman. Fermented vegetables have many health benefits, including live enzymes, readily available vitamins and minerals, and probiotics -- and sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables are suitable for everyone! If possible, each person should bring a large knife, cutting board, large bowl, and a 500ml-size wide-mouth mason jar with lid. Participants will go home with a jar of cranberry sauerkraut to ferment at home., VV will have a seed library present - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds.

Suggested donation: Free for Seniors (50 and over). $0-10, plus $7 materials fee for everyone else. Register here or to by Wednesday, November 30.

Village Vancouver is a member of Vancouver Neighbourhood Food Networks ( -- check it out!.


Organized and led by seniors, VV ElderGreens brings seniors, youth and others together to share food and gardening skills and wisdom through workshops and other activities. All ages welcome, please contact us at if you're interested in getting involved.

Hosted by VV, the Aberthau Garden Project (2015-17) includes VV's Demonstration Permaculture Garden, the West Point Grey Preschool Garden, and (following last year’s Sunflower Garden) the Pumpkin Patch, a new art/garden project by Aberthau artists-in-residence: LocoMotoArt Laura Lee Coles and Rob Scharein.

Emphasizing regenerative, low maintenance and moisture retentive permaculture design elements, including a small hugelkultur, an herb spiral, and saving open pollinated seeds, last year Village planted annual and perennial veggies, fruits, herbs and flowers, including pollinator attractants. Offering fun and inclusive social, educational, and cultural activities for community members, including free or low cost workshops, newer gardeners garden collaboratively alongside more experienced gardeners, providing a learning experience for everyone.
