You'll get to sample finished product, and receive printed instructions for both milk and water kefir on how to make them at home.
We'll have a seed library present - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds.
$0-10 suggested donation, plus $5 fee for samples. Free for Seniors (50 and over). Register here (http://www.villagevancouver.ca/events/milk-and-water-kefir-open-to-all-free-for-seniors) or to email@example.com.
