ABOUT THE EVENT

Don't miss July's Engage Green workshop at Jackalope Brewing Company, brought to you by Lightning 100's Team Green Adventures and Urban Green Lab.

Come learn how simple it is to make your own kraut, kimchi and other fermented delicacies with award-winning fermentation revivalist, Sandor Ellix Katz. Learn about the healing qualities and nutritional importance of live-culture ferments, as well as their illustrious history and integral role in human cultural evolution. Empower yourself with simple techniques for fermenting these healthful foods in your home. Be part of the fermentation revival!

Sandor's books Wild Fermentation (2003, 2016) and the Art of Fermentation (2012), along with the hundreds of fermentation workshops he has taught around the world, have helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts. A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, the New York Times calls him “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.” Sandor is the recipient of a James Beard award and many other honors. For more information, check out his website www.wildfermentation.com.

"Sandor Katz shows you why an act as practical as making your own sauerkraut represents nothing less than a way of engaging with the world." Michael Pollan, food author activist
