Fermentation Guild: Yogurt & Kefir Workshop

  • Grow Benzie 5885 Frankfort Highway Benzonia, MI, 49616 United States (map)

WHAT?
Grow Benzie's Fermentation Guild meets the third Thursday of the month. The Fermentation Guild brings together professional fermenters, enthusiasts and those merely curious about fermentation. The group starts with a potluck, a chance to share fermented goodies and to "talk shop" with others. Then a workshop lead by one of the members. This month's workshop will have Farmer Carol who's family has been milking cows so long her last name means Colorful Cow leading the group in a yogurt and kefir demonstration. This group has free or reduced pricing for Grow Benzie Members with a Sprout Membership ($50+) or higher. There are varying drop-in costs to each meeting for non-members. We strive to make our educational programming available to all regardless of finances. If a membership would put this group out of reach please email carol@growbenzie.org before the event to work out volunteer opportunities in lieu of a paid membership.
