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.

Please note: This class requires at least six students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class

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!
