Information Evening – Fermenting

Guest Speaker: Gillian Kozicki

Permaculture is a lifestyle choice – a way of thinking, being and designing; of living in harmony with your surroundings in an ecologically sustainable manner. As an approach to life, it is logical, practical and mimics natural systems.

Cultured Artisans focuses within this permaculture journey on the skills for preserving some of the produce from this lifestyle and enhancing their probiotic properties. In the process the byproducts include reducing waste, increasing health benefits and continuing to strengthen a sense of community.

We provide unforgettable experiences using natural abundance to create healthy foods and drinks. We introduce the basic skills to build people’s confidence and knowledge so they can in time, add their individual creativity and flair to each ferment.

Consuming homemade fermented foods is all about starting small and building diversity with time as confidence and experience increases. Along the way we set the stage for resilience, obtaining a yield and reconnecting.
