Kefir Grains For Sale (dairy)

Kefir is a healthy drink for the digestive system, probiotic, similar to yoghurt. Prounced 'keefer' or 'kefear', it's the knobbly cream coloured grains that create this slightly sour tasting fermented liquid. The fermentation process changes some of the milk proteins and structure, so making it easier to digest.

My Kefir grains have been lovingly made from organic cow 2% dairy milk. I've thanked every batch and enjoyed every smoothie I've had.

Kefir grains love to give you batch after batch (as along as they remain healthy) making for a daily ready supply of probiotic natural drink in the fridge.

I supply:
Information sheet with your grains, how to make kefir and tips.
2 teaspoons of grains per order

Good health!

City of North Vancouver Public Hearing on the Zoning Bylaw amendment and Small Creatures Limitation Bylaw amendment
Monday, September 17, 2012, 7PM
City Hall, 141 West 14th Street
North Vancouver

If you feel comfortable addressing council, we encourage you to show your support by sharing your opinion. The intent of the Public Hearing is to give all members of the public a reasonable opportunity to present their point of view, to offer suggestions, and to indicate support or concerns. Once the public hearing has concluded, no further information or submissions can be considered by council. If time permits the same evening or at the next available open meeting, the proposed changes will be brought forward for second or third and final reading under the Bylaw section of the Council Agenda.

Don't forget to wear your CLUCK buttons if you have them; we will also have stickers available for those of you who do not.

Let's pack the audience!
details and CNV draft of the amended bylaws

I think it would be great to share a table Randy. I'll let Emily know.

Looks like Evonne and I can be there - Lucien, it is in the afternoon, can you still come out and play?

Anyone else?

Comment by Randy Chatterjee on February 11, 2012 at 10:26pm

It looks like I will be there with one of our neighbourhood Village seed libraries, and might have an opportunity to present the concept of seed libraries during the event.  I'd love some help tabling and just helping to talk about the power of collaboration.
