Second Saturday Workshop Series: Intro to Fermentation

We have partnered with Carolyn from These Things Take Time for our Second Saturday Workshop at The GrowHaus on February 11 from 11 am to 1 pm. The workshop will be on fermentation. Learn what fermentation is, why people do it, and the basic principles of how to do it yourself. If you aren't familiar with These Things Take Time, they are fabulous probiotic cultured food products made right here in Denver. 

Tickets are $20 for general public. Members of Tambien, our monthly-giving membership program, always receive a special discount. You can purchase tickets here.

Our top 5 reasons you should be fermenting:

  1. Probiotics– Eating fermented foods and drinking fermented drinks will introduce beneficial bacteria into your digestive system and help the balance of bacteria in your digestive system.
  2. Absorb Food Better– Having the proper balance of gut bacteria and enough digestive enzymes helps you absorb more of the nutrients in the foods you eat. 
  3. Preserves Food Easily– Homemade salsa only lasts a few days in the fridge- Fermented homemade salsa lasts months! The same goes for sauerkraut, pickles, beets and other garden foods. Lacto-fermentation allows you to store these foods for longer periods of time without losing the nutrients like you would with traditional canning.

100% of the proceeds will support The GrowHaus and help us continue serving the Elyria-Swansea neighborhood. Please feel free to come early and join us for a free public tour at 10:00 am to learn more about The GrowHaus.
