Kombucha & Ginger Beer

Want to learn to make homemade Kombucha and Wild Fermented root drinks such as Ginger Beer, Turmeric Beer, and Sunchoke Beer? They are all fermented to be full of probiotics (healthy gut!), nonalcoholic (less than .5 percent), and simple to make. Kombucha is a fermented tea that acts as an adaptogen, which helps the body maintain homeostasis. The wild root drinks bring wild yeasts and bacteria from your environment into your system, which makes for a happy gut. The main ingredients are simple; water, the root or SCOBY, and something sweet.

Come sit among the fields of vegetables and fruits at Finca Tres Robles and practice the ancient art of fermentation. Leave with a jar of your favorite drink or a starter culture to make your own.

Past flavor favorites: beet and jalapeño, ginger, local hibiscus, Mexican mint marigold

10% of the proceeds to this class current indigenous resistance projects and movements. In the past this money has gone to Two Rivers Camp, AIDA and Survival International. These groups champion tribal peoples and defend their land and culture. As we celebrate their wisdom in our class we will also be sending support for their way of living to continue.

Instructor: (Nov 3rd, Dec 8th) Andrew Cobb has been teaching fermentation in the Houston area for a few years. He focuses on Wild Yeast/Bacteria Fermentation as taught by Sandor Katz. His classes are engaging, passionate, informative and eye opening. For him, teaching fermentation in the city is a chance to celebrate and appreciate the wisdom of folks who live off the land and understand that their knowledge is as valuable as what is taught in universities.

Instructor: (Sept 15th) Tracy Hamblin is a homeschool mom of three awesome kids born and raised in Houston. A proponent for conscious living she obsesses over scratch cooking, sharing food, gardening, homebirth, mindful parenting, growing community, working with kids at Houston Peace Camp and laughing!
