Make easy sourdough bread from scratch and learn how to create living throbbing with probiotic life lactic fermented foods. Everyone takes home a loaf of bread to bake at home that evening.

These workshops are aimed at the beginner. All these foods will greatly increase the health of both you and your family as they taste the delicious creations you will soon be making for them.

?Day Two Details

Learn how to grow abundant vegetable gardens all year round!

Learn how to grow tropical vegetables in a food forest garden in all tropical climates.

Tropical vegetables are ideal in our hot dry/wet summers. We can grow many of our favourite vegetables throughout most of the year. Unfortunately, when the summer heat strikes, most of our plants just seem to wilt away. Nevertheless, this is when we can have abundant yields from sweet Potatoes, Cassava, Taro, Cocoyams and so many more!

This exciting way of gardening will give you much pleasure in yielding nutrient-dense food while at the same time creating a microclimate that is pleasant to be in.

Here's what some of our recent cheesemakers and fermenters said about their workshops:

The 3 workshops over the past couple of days were so well organised and run. You have such a depth of knowledge and a wonderful teaching style which made it so enjoyable and easy to understand. I feel totally inspired by what I have learned and can't wait to start making my own ferments and dairy products. Thank you"


"Just want to say how wonderful this course was. My attempts on making the food have all worked out so far. I just loved it and would recommend to anyone that cares about their food to get more fermented food into their diet." Rita"Went to the whole day sourdough, brie, feta, etc workshop at Cooroy last weekend and highly recommend this. Elizabeth is so knowledgeable plus really easy to follow and makes the task at hand so much less daunting. Had a really inspiring day."
