What: Grow Your Own Workshop - Kombucha Making!
When: Saturday 2/24/24 from 1:30pm-3:30pm (preregistration required)
Where: The Hardwick Health Center

Are you CURIOUS about KOMBUCHA? Our next Grow Your Own workshop will be focused on how (and why) to make this tasty fermented beverage at home. It’s easier than you may think. This workshop is for everyone from beginning or aspiring kombucha makers to those who are familiar with the process and looking for inspiration and/or some new recipes to try out at home!

In case you’re not already familiar with kombucha: It is a fermented beverage made from tea which can be flavored with lots of different ingredients to match your preferences and palate.
If you like kombucha and drink it often, you’re probably aware that buying it can become an expensive habit…so making your own at home can be both fun and a way to help you save $!

In this workshop, we’ll cover:
-The history and benefits of kombucha (& other fermented foods)
-The basic supplies needed (you likely already have most or all of them!)

-Kombucha FAQs & SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast or ‘mother’) maintenance at home

-Kombucha sampling & taste test (2 different flavors/types)

-Brainstorm of recipe ideas & flavor combinations

But most importantly: Together we’ll walk through the process of how to make a gallon of kombucha from start to finish. Hayley Williams will lead this workshop and promises it’s easier than you think! This workshop is open to all (including kids) but we ask that you pre-register by February 22 as space is limited. Final note for anyone who plans to attend this workshop: Please bring your own (quart) mason jar & lid if you’d like to go home with a SCOBY to bring home to start your fermentation adventures!
