Fermentation Workshop

Primary tabs

Join us at the sunny Greenhouse where we will talk about different ways to ferment and preserve food and make seasonal ferments using locally grown ingredients.

You will leave with three ferments to take home and the confidence to ferment seasonally in your kitchen.

If you can bring three large (c.500ml) or six smaller (c.300ml) clean, recycled jars with you, please do. If not, we have kilner jars we can supply at cost and a limited supply of recycled jars for free.

Book your £30 (£15 concession) ticket here 

Half of the workshop proceeds will go to the Greenhouses to support our work and the other half towards fundraising for Jelena's nephew Jude's operation to help him learn how to walk. You can read about little Jude and cerebral palsy here.

Jelena is a trained macrobiotic and wholefoods chef with a passion for fermentation.  Jelena has run very popular Family Fermentation workshops for children at the Greenhouses.  This time it's the grown ups' turn!

Jelena trained with the world-renowned macrobiotic counsellor Simon Brown between 2009 and 2011. After 12 years in news and current affairs, Jelena left her job at the BBC to pursue her passion for food full time.  Jelena has in recent years led numerous macrobiotic and wholefood cooking and fermentation workshops, published nutritious recipes in the Serbian magazine Sensa, worked with private clients and wrote a bi-lingual blog for a while, focusing on healthier food choices for the whole family.
