Location: Transition Farm, Fingal (address will be given upon ticket purchase)
Cost: $225 (+ processing fee) includes GST
Includes: demonstration class, lunch and a goody bag to take away.

Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. His books Wild Fermentation and the Art of Fermentation, along with the hundreds of fermentation workshops he has taught around the world, have helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts. A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, the New York Times calls him “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.” Sandor is the recipient of a James Beard award and other honors. For more information, check out his website www.wildfermentation.com.

Please reach by 9.30am on Sunday 1 March to register at the gate.

The farm tour, hosted by Robin Koster Carlyon of Transition Farm will begin at 10am sharp, and the farm gate will close at 10.05am and you will need to call Baxter to gain entry.

 

Parking:

Please carpool when you can, or park either along Truemans Rd or in the St Andrews brewery (if you plan to have a fermented brew there after).

 

The Venue:

Transition Farm is a beautiful bio-dynamically run (and Demeter certified) farm growing vegetables for its CSA membership (local community) and restaurants in the city (Embla, Cutler & Co., Cumulus Inc, and Supernormal).

Their farming methods are centered around building the life of the soil – which they do through a combination of Green Manures, Conscious tillage, Australian Demeter Biodynamic Preparations, Compost made on farm and Chickens.
Everything is hand harvested and hand-weeded!
Students to Bring:
Pen and paper. Also, please watch the video below to familiarise yourself with Sandor’s work. It will give you a much richer experience of what he does, on the day.

Rewild Your Gut with Sharon Flynn

 

Location: Transition Farm, Fingal (address will be given upon ticket purchase)
Cost: $185 (+ processing fee) includes GST
Includes: demonstration class, lunch and a goody bag to take away.

Sharon Flynn is considered a foremost authority on fermentation and has made it her mission to bring a variety of fermented food and drinks into homes everywhere. Sharon immersed herself in various fermentation techniques during 20 years abroad living in Malaysia, Japan, the US and Europe as an expat, experiencing the benefits of these foods on the microbiome first hand when her youngest daughter became ill. This led her back to Australia, and to the birth of The Fermentary in 2013. Sharon has since fought hard to ferment traditionally, standing for complex flavour and texture over fast processes and health food fads which has earned The Fermentary many awards for various products including ‘Outstanding Artisan’. In 2015 Sharon attended a fermentation residency with Sandor Katz in his home in Tennessee, later returning to Kyoto to attend a Koji residency. Sharon published Ferment for Good, in 2017, now in its third edition. She shares her knowledge and passion for this ancient art through her various products and sold out workshops and events, regularly hosting other experts to Australia to share theirs.
