Fermenting Workshop at Bellingen Community Gardens August 18,2016


Leela's sauerkraut demonstration


After the fermentation demonstrations we planned and shared seeds.

Jeff's yummy kombucha

Jeff recommended the Grow Youthful Australian website for fermentation details and a starter plant. Go to Kombucha

Jeff explains the kombucha process (fermenting tea, sugar and water).

Leela's improvised sauerkraut fermenting jar with her commercial fermenting jar.
Making sauerkraut is a method to preserve vegetables as well as making a healthy food.

Leela also demonstrated the process of making milk kefir just by leaving milk to ferment.


Lunch, important at all of our events.




Nell's stir fry makes good use of all of her vegetable garden. It made a pleasant warm picnic salad.


Rae's carrot cake is always in demand
