Bring fresh produce and quart jars to ferment your own to take home. This is a great opportunity to learn all about natural fermentation - it's benefits and how to do it.
Participants are welcome to bring any ferments to share/get second opinions about. They are also encouraged to bring starter cultures to share and containers (like a small glass jar) if they'd like to potentially take one home.
