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: email@example.com. 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.
