Practices, Policies & Pricing

We recognize that historical injustice has led to an inequitable distribution of wealth and resources.
We seek ways to support and stand in solidarity with those who have experienced systemic oppression.

Pay-What-You-Can Pricing

We aim to offer fermentation education that is accessible and affordable for all people. When we control the pricing of the workshop, we use sliding-scale and pay-what-you-can practices. Those who pay more on the scale help support those who pay less or cannot pay anything at all. By offering pay-what-you-can pricing, we trust that people will pay what they can afford and will pay higher on the scale if possible. Any amount you pay over the lower end of the sliding scale goes a long way in sustaining the instructors, scholarships and donor recipients. For more guidance on choosing a price, we encourage you to reflect on your background, income, resources and privileges.

No One Turned Away

The opportunity to learn, ferment and eat should be a right, not a privilege.
If you are challenged to attend a workshop given the pricing policies outlined above, we are happy to discuss alternatives.
