Microbe Camp!! Wildcrafting Cheese, Bread, Wine, and Kimchi.

Summer camp for grown-ups!!!!

Cheese, cordials, sourdough, and kimchi fermenting in our outdoor kitchen

All fermentation processes are pretty much the same. In this camp, you will learn the basic microbial processes used to make cheeses, vinegar, beer, wine, bread, kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles, cordials, and more. And once you understand how it all works, we will teach you to harness wild microbes to make fermented foods and drinks…no need for commercial yeasts, or even electricity and running water! You will learn how to do this the same way our ancestors did for thousands of years.
Our primary focus will be to teach you about fermentation. But a large part of fermenting is waiting. So while we are waiting, we will take plant walks to forage for local edible. And we will show you how to cook some amazing meals over the fire (real meals, not franks and beans). Class size is small to keep the student-instructor ratio low. This will allow us to focus on your individual interests and provide you with an amazing learning experience.
