CABBAGE POETRY: Using what you have to make what you need!
First in a series of Saturday workshops combining conversation and craft skills.
We will start the day off with a playful poetry exercise lead by poet-in-residence Abby Minor. Pam Mack will teach fermenting; she has been fermenting using the approach popularized by Sandor Katz for several years.
Feb. 6, 2016 from 9:30 am to 2 pm in the Pottery at the Rensing Center: 1165 Mile Creek Rd. Pickens, SC 29671
Lunch will be provided, program cost is $50
Payable through check upon arrival or through PayPal.
We will learn and meditate on the ways in which human beings are sustained by beneficial bacteria inside us and around us. We will sample and prepare sauerkraut, Jun tea (related to kombucha but made with honey instead of sugar) and other ferments. Each participant will take home a jar of sauerkraut and a jar of Jun tea, ready to put in a cool place in your house and allow to ferment.
The goal of these workshops is to try out new skills but also to explore resources for healing through our creativity and spirituality and to reflect more deeply on how we live our lives. Our goal is to share ideas for nourishing our bodies and spirits, the community, and the earth.
