After her book discussion, attendees will discover the simple tradition of preservation through bacterial collaboration in one of its most simple forms — via the local micro-flora of vegetables. You will have an opportunity to taste a variety of ferments from the bus that are featured in the book. You will learn about the cost effective and simple tools involved and go home knowing how to creatively and fearlessly ferment vegetables.

You also are invited onto the bus for tours, tastings, and fermentation talk. Bring starter cultures of your own for exchange and discussion. If you would like to take a starter culture home with you, please bring something to trade or $10 per starter culture. Bring a container.
