Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

I obtained some kefir grains in May 2011 and have been making kefir and growing the grains - and giving excess to friends. Now several of us have more grains than we need.

I'd like to find good homes for excess grains - but I want to make sure those who take them are truly interested and knowledgeable about them and will take care of them.

Is anyone interested?

Hi Dalyce,

I would love to start making water kefir ... have any of your friends still got a supply?


Hi Rachel. Did you ever get any from Dalyce? If not, please let me know and I will gladly share some!

I have water kefir grains that need a new home please. We just can't drink enough to keep up!

Hello Carol! I am an international student from Japan and my Mom had introduced me to kefir this new year when I loved it! I would be happy to grab some kefir grains if you still have some available, please let me know :)


Hi, if anyone is interested, I have water kefir grains and kombucha culture.

Hi guys,

I hate to be that extra "me too please" but I am in need of some healthy kombucha & kefir.
I will gladly pay you if you are willing to meet me somewhere along the skytrain route as I do not drive.

Thanks so much for what you guys do (spreading the love) ^_^

Once I have cultivated mine I can absolutely return the favor :-)

Hi Everyone:
I'm new to the Village Vancouver and not sure all this work! I am looking for kefir grains kept in milk. I used before and stop for a couple of years but want to try again. I will pick-up, please contact me @ to make an arrangement.
Thanks for sharing

Hello Elaine.
I'm new to the Village and inserted my original message at the wrong point. Hope this gets to you.

I'm interested in your offer for water kefir grains as well. Do you have enough for another person? I'm leaving for a few days for work but will be back by this Friday so anytime that works for you after that would be good for me. You can contact me at Thanks for your generosity!


I am in South Surrey and would be very interested in water kefir grains. I am making milk kefir and some coconut milk kefir, but would love to have water kefir also if you still have them.
You can email me directly, at
Thanks very much

Hi Chris, I'm sorry but I do not live in Vancouver anymore. There may be others in the area who still have water kefir as many were fermenting at the time. Try freecycle and craigslist as well. I got mine originally through one of those sites.
