Why would you join the CLUB?
Imagine yourself a year from now. Then imagine all the times you have thought about making sauerkraut but just never got round to it.
We believe that nothing changes until what you do every day changes and we appreciate how hard it can be to establish the routine.
The study of fermentation has mapped out on an extraordinary journey. It is a daily part of my life which has also lead for undeniable improvements in my health and well being. I have atttempted to share with you over many years, whether by hosting workshops, talks or writing a book….yet still there is so much more to learn. There are so many corners to explore, to engage with, to tease out, to relearn and most of all to experience together. After teaching for seven years, it felt right to have some fun. To run things differently and to share in the excitement these foods deserve and the postive and undeniable changes they can make in ones life. And so we have become a CLUB. A real space where you can gather and ferment and learn, and taste and experience all the wonders of these foods for yourself, with other folk who like to ferment too.
IT is a brave move, a radical move, to offer something of such benefit and expertise at such a reasonable price. But we have been lucky and for the limtied time we can offer this opportunity we would like to share it with you. Have a glance at the fun which awaits on our 12 month programme. You can come and go as you please, you can do it all or just some of it. The CLUB is here for you and remember, if you change a little, you will change ALOT.
MEMBERSHIP FOR THE ROLLING 12 MONTH PROGRMAMME IS currently ONLY £52
THE YEAR AT A GLANCE
SPRING is a time of new potential, lightness and growth. We can emerge from the darkness of winter, shaking off the deep, contemplative weight of the previous months.
It is one of the best times of year to do a cleanse or an appropriate fast, paying attention to foods which are vibrant and cleansing
In this season the programme of events will focus on the Liver and Gall bladder, offering a fresh palate to choose from and fermentation techniques and foods to work with to promote a gentle detox.
Practical sessions making Kombucha ( March), Preserved lemons (April) and Milk Kefir (May) will feature as part of the learning.
We will also explore the tastes of these foods where we aim to bring you new flavours and experiences with fermented foods and seasonal eating.
