Event Description

Village Vancouver presents Winter Kraut Making. Learn how to make your own traditional, fermented vegetables using seasonal, local, organic produce. Fermented vegetables have many health benefits, including live enzymes, readily available vitamins and minerals, and probiotics -- and sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables are RAW, VEGAN, and suitable for Paleo diets. If possible, each person should bring a large knife, cutting board, large bowl, cheese grater and one liter-size wide-mouth mason jar with lid, and you're also welcome to bring veggies from your own garden to ferment. Workshop fee includes cost of produce and participants will go home with a jar of kraut to ferment at home, which should be ready to eat in about two weeks.

VV will have a seed library present - if you come a little early, you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds.

Fee: $15 for workshop + $5 for materials. Maximum 12 participants. Pre-register by March 11th, so we know how much produce to bring for the workshop.

50% Subsidies on the non-materials portion ($15) of the workshop fee are available to low income residents of Vancouver with a Leisure Access Card. For details on how to apply, please contact Strathcona CC or visit
