Event Description

In this Village Vancouver ElderGreens workshop with Alyssa Kohlman from Fermentoring, you'll learn to create home-made fruit "soda pop" from water kefir starter culture: from creating the initial mixture to flavouring and bottling it (secondary fermentation). The result is a highly carbonated, dry, healthful fruit soda. You’ll get to sample the finished product, and take home your own kefir starter grains with printed instructions. Bring a small, leak-proof jar for your grains. Adults and families with children 10 years and older are welcome. All minors must be accompanied by a caregiver. We'll have a Community Seed Library present - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds.


Registtration required. Limited space. (Walkins OK if room.) Register here or by email: ross@villagevancouver.ca. By donation ($0 - $10), plus a $7 materials fee. Free for Seniors (50 and over).


Also at the Field House this week: Thursday, April 20th 6:30-8:30, East Van Chi. Pre-registration required.

Village Vancouver's healthy, local food residency at the Strathcona Park Field House offers a variety of affordable food and community based programming at the fieldhouse, Strathcona Community Centre, and elsewhere.


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 if you're interested in getting involved.
