Good for Ya Gut: Fermentation Basics

How to ferment foods



2 hours Class size 1 to 24     label $55


With a bit of planning and time, it’s entirely possible to restore the full health of your gastrointestinal system, which can have major positive effects on your entire body, from mood to memory, and more. Healing your gut allows the body to build a stronger immune system and produce the right kind of bacteria that tells your brain that it’s okay to feel good again!

In this workshop, you will get a detailed overview of fermentation, from Kimchi to Kombucha, Kefir to Quark, and yoghurt, both dairy and non-dairy; these are all fermented foods that you can make yourself at home! Learn the basics of how to ferment foods and how important they are in achieving a healthy diet and a strong immune system.

There will also be available for sale on the night – yoghurt makers, yoghurt cultures, both dairy and non-dairy, kefir cultures, vegetable fermentation systems and cultures.

Presented by Valerie Pearson Green Living Australia.

Valerie has been a home cheesemaker and rampant foodie for 25 years and has a passion for fresh, organic, homemade foods. Valerie’s daughter Angie was born with chemical sensitivity in 1988 and this changed their lives forever. After struggling with food labelling laws, Valerie armed herself with the knowledge and skills needed to take back control of her family’s diet! Valerie became a well informed and conscious home cook and cheese connoisseur and delved into the science behind fermented foods. Valerie published her first book, Home Cheese Making in Australia, in 2016 and is currently working on her second book, Sugar Free Home Preserving.

About Green Living Australia

The Green Living Australia business evolved from a need to create homemade, preservative free, additive free foods, and chemical free body products to combat the ever increasing food allergy and chemical sensitivity within our society. From this, Green Living Australia has built a strong community, providing pure cultures, equipment and education for conscious foodies to fill their dietary requirements and gourmet food cravings or make all natural body products that are chemical free and sustainable!

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

Jenny McDougall  •  Feb 2020


Thoroughly enjoyed the class, very informative and came away wanting to try the recipes and the procedures.
The girls were a lot of fun.

Sandy Young  •  Feb 2020


Teacher so knowledgeable, interesting and fun. Couldn’t have asked for more. De- mystified food fermentation, yoghurt making, kombucha and kafir.
Highly recommended.

Peta Newbold  •  Feb 2020


The teacher was engaging and knowledgeable and I gained some helpful insights. I’m undecided about the ethics of charging participants for what was essentially an opportunity to market her products to a captive audience though. What I do know for certain is that the seating was hideously uncomfortable and inadequate for the length of this session.
