Event Description

In this Village Vancouver ElderGreens and Aberthau Garden Project workshop with Alyssa Kohlman, you'll learn how to culture your own fermented tonic milk kefir (a sour yogurt-like beverage), followed by water kefir (a home-made fruit "soda pop"). 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 ross@villagevancouver.ca.


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

Emphasizing permaculture design elements, including a small hugelkultur, an herb spiral, planting pollinator attractants, and saving open pollinated seeds, the garden offers fun, inclusive social, educational, culinary and cultural activities for community members. Enjoy free/low-cost Wednesday evening cooking, fermenting & preserving demonstrations, inc. sauerkraut, kefir,and tastes of Korea and India, gardening workshops like early summer gardening, native edibles walks and the seed savers club.
In the garden, newer gardeners garden collaboratively alongside more experienced gardeners at our Saturday work parties, providing a learning experience for everyone.
