    Levity Gardens and ~Foods That Heal~ presents:
    Rebuilding Soil & Human Health with Fermentation: a workshop on soil
    microbe fermentation and fermented foods
    Part I Fermentation and Microbes for Soil: Learn about the role of
    weed fermentation and how we can speed up soil health, vigour and
    productivity. Discover the gestures of weeds, the minerals they are
    farming, their role in soil regeneration and how we can make their
    properties more bio-available.

    Learn how to read the plant's mineral influences in the soil through
    observational techniques. We will expand upon how to implement that
    knowledge into your gardening practices, plant selection land
    preparation, composting and fermentation.
    As a group we will make a weed fermentation together and you will take
    some weed fertilizer home with you, along with your new knowledge on
    how to use your weeds as indicators and how to enhance their mineral
    content in your garden- Johnny One-Tree

    We will then have a break with a nourishing, organic lunch that will
    feature an array of fermented foods & beverages

    Part II Fermenting Food for Human Health: Fermented foods have been
    valued for centuries because of their medicinal properties, vital
    forces and their ability to aid digestion and balance the intestinal
    flora. However, in modern times the skills of fermenting have been
    lost. It is necessary that they are revived so that we can improve our
    health as we work towards a sustainable future!
    In this workshop we aim to give you an understanding of the conditions
    that allow invisible and mysterious microbes to naturally transform
    ordinary foods into nutritionally dense medicinal foods, so that you
    can produce live cultured foods yourself.
    We will start with a theory session on the principles of fermentation
    and its importance for sustainability. It will be followed by a
    hands-on demonstration of preparing live-cultured foods such as
    sauerkraut and kim-chi, water kefir and getting started with
    Micro-organisms are the foundation of life and health. As conscious
    beings, we are fortunate enough to have a choice about having an open,
    symbiotic relationship with beneficial bacteria. We can start by
    eating fermented foods on a regular basis!
