Join us for a 4-part series on preparing living foods: Fermented Vegetables, Sprouted Seeds, Cultured Dairy, and Kombucha

Come learn the time honored skills for four underutilized food preparation techniques that bring the freshness, nutrient density, and flavor of raw and live foods to your diet.

Sure, you can buy them in the store, but why not learn how to make them yourself to save money and increase your confidence in the kitchen.

These foods bring unique nutritional benefits that help promote vitality and resiliency in your wellness. And they are not difficult to make on your own.

In each class, you will receive instruction for preparation and get hands on experience with the technique, plus you will take home your own creation from the class.  All recipes and handouts will also be provided.
