Mission & Values

Our Values

We value the lessons that can be learned by reconnecting with how our ancestors preserved food. We believe that microbes have so much to teach us, and that opening our minds to their transformation of food can teach humility, patience, and appreciation. We value the nature of food in bringing people together, and that by embracing fermentation as a community we can therefore transform and ferment ourselves and the greater food system. We believe that no one should be turned away from our workshops based on their income: we value all people, and offer our workshops through pay-what-you-can pricing.
