Fermenting a taste for life
If you’re keen to learn how to make a powerful probiotic from a humble garden vegetable or taste a tea nicknamed ‘the immortality elixir’ then get along to the Maylands Library at 2pm on Friday 22 September for a hands-on workshop with fermentation goddess Carla Weir.
Carla from Gaia’s Organic Gardens has long been helping people live more sustainably by establishing their own organic vegetable gardens, fermenting food and making their own beauty products.
During the workshop Carla will teach you how to ferment Sauerkraut (cabbage) that can be used as a base to ferment other foods. Carla will also have some Kombucha, a fermented lightly effervescent sweetened black tea derived from mushrooms, available for tasting.
The Preserving and Fermentation workshop is one of three sessions held at the City’s libraries in September under the theme ‘The importance of Plants’.
On Thursday 21 September at 2pm WA Scientist of Year 2016, Professor Kingsley Dixon will speak about his work in plant science, restoration ecology and conservation science at the Morley Library. On Saturday 23 September at 10am John Yaxley from Bayswater’s Environment House will show residents how to make their own organic garden and start composting.

The Community Training Program comprises 15 free-to-attend workshops covering topics such as how to write winning grant applications, recruit and retain volunteers, as well as using social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram to boost membership and build their brand.
The workshop program got underway on 30 August at the City’s Administration Centre and will run through to June 2018.
The workshops will benefit both new and well-established groups, as well as individuals who are looking for an opportunity to actively participate in their local club.
