Fermenting and Candlemaker Workshops
Participants of the September 10 class will learn fermenting basics, take home sauerkraut and make kimchi to ferment at home. There will also be a kombucha tasting. Fermentation is a food preservation technique that provides beneficial probiotics to the gut microbiome. The acids produced during fermentation make food more digestible, nutritious and delicious. The techniques are surprisingly simple and easy to learn.
Those attending the candle-making workshop will create their own signature fragrance from a blend of soy-based oils. All supplies will be provided, including 100% soy wax, eco-wicks and handmade concrete vessels in an array of designs. Participants will make two candles to take with them after they have cured. Wine and snacks will be available.
In addition to locally sourced organic produce, fresh nut milks, local honey and natural grocery items for specialty diets, Natural Concepts Revisited has a café; juice bar; and educational center dedicated to health, wellness and sustainable practices. Organic gardening supplies, including locally made compost and organic fertilizer, are also available.
Cost: Fermenting class: $30; candle-making workshop: $40 (cost for both events includes materials). Location: 142 W. International Speedway Blvd. To reserve a spot for either event, call owner Jo Anne Staley (or Browne for the candle workshop) at 386-341-5068.
