Pickling and Lacto-fermentation Class: Basics

Learn the basics of how to ferment food



2 hours Class size 1 to 40     label $65


In this engaging presentation, through great demonstration you will get a detailed overview of traditional pickling aka lacto fermentation!  Lacto-fermentation is the process that produces traditional dill pickles, kimchi and real sauerkraut, among other fermented delights! 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 Green Living Australia equipment available for sale on the night (preserving kits, pickling supplies and equipment, plus copies of Valerie’s Book ‘Sugar Free Home Preserving’)

Please keep in mind this is a demonstration based session. Students will not be pickling during this session, students will be given all the knowledge, and access to equipment to start pickling and lacto-fermenting at home.


Please note: This class requires at least five 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.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • Wine on arrival
  • A few recipes and step by step guide
  • Tastings
  • Pickling and fermentation products and kits will also be available for purchase during the workshop.

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 is the author of Home Cheese Making in Australia and Sugar-Free Home Preserving. Valerie is currently working on my next book, Gut Health and Fermentation.

Joanne has been fortunate to have travelled extensively around the world, gathering a wealth of knowledge and practical hands-on experience in several fields. Using these skills, she has been able to invent a sustainable, energy-efficient, life-changing product, EasyOven. Joanne has created education programs in Design and Technology and the Sciences as well as launching a new program in Australia, Unemployed to Self-Employed. All her work promotes employment, encourage Empowerment, Entrepreneurship and encourages a positive behavioural shift in the way our communities live their lives.  Joanne is a member of the following:

    • UN Global Alliance Clean Cookstoves – Partner
    • ISO TC285 – Clean Cook Stoves (responsible to develop the Australian position for the international standards development process.) Australian expert in this field.
    • Association for Sustainability in Business – Australia. Member
    • Solar Cookers International – Member

About Green Living Australia

Valerie’s business, Green Living Australia, 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!

The class perfectly matched our interest in fermentation topic. Joanne & Valerie speak very clear and even the scientific terms and processes are easy to understand. Also they love to joke with each other, creating a chill and cozy ambient.
The price is adequate and in the end you can opt to buy some starter kit to create your own yogurt and kimchi at home.

Jennifer Mathiesen  •  Feb 2021


Very informative session about gut health and lacto fermentation. It was good to hear a bit of the science and biology behind it all.
Teaching the traditional and more conventional methods was great too.

They worked well together, would have been good to be hands in but I understand why that wouldn’t have worked!
