Event at The Compost Education Centre

Time Price
Sat, 1pm - 3pm
$0 – $20

Start brewing your own yummy, good for your tummy, fermented beverages with this crash course in Kombucha, Milk Kefir and Water Kefir!

Having mysterious histories, these fermented, probiotic rich delicacies are known for being full of good things that promote overall digestive wellness. They are delicious and satisfying and there is a great number of ways you can flavor your goods! In this workshop we’ll go over the basics of how to ferment kombucha and kefir, and we’ll learn how to create effervescent kombucha with unique flavoring, like purchased kombuchas so often have.

We will be sampling these tasty fermented bevvies, and you’ll have the opportunity to take one culture home with you, so bring along a jar if you wish to take home a SCOBY for kombucha or some grains for kefir.

Instructor Bio:

Kayla is a keen foodie – growing, cooking, eating, preserving, fermenting food are all passions of hers. She’s been fermenting from the offspring of a Kombucha mother she was passed in 2012, and fermenting milk kefir from grains passed to her also in 2012. She actively trades her cultures to folks all over the city. As the Education Coordinator at the Compost Education centre, she also gets to share her joy for environmental education with kids of all ages.

The Compost Education Centre is located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa'wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. At the CEC we seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies and our diverse, evolving communities.
