fermented feasts

Posted: March 7 2010

Ferment Change is a two month long string of events that benefit City Slicker Farms in West Oakland in the months of April and May.  This event series strives to weave together fermented foods, culture, and urban agriculture through a series of skill shares, dinners, bicycle tours, workshops all culminating in 400+ strong fermented food feast and potluck at the Humanist Hall Oakland.  We encourage partners and participants to host their own events around urban agriculture and/or fermented foods to benefit City Slicker Farms or local food based groups working to create a more equitable food system. 
FERMENT CHANGE: "A fermented feast"
Our main event is hosted an the Humanist Hall in Oakland and gathers 400+ attendees for live music, skill shares, culture swaps and a fermented food feast in the form of a community potluck.  100's of homemade pickles,beers, krauts, kefirs, and more to share.  Email [email protected] to tell us what you are bringing or to get on our email list.

 Be an urban ag hero and host your own satellite to benefit City Slicker Farms, Haiti Relief, or an urban ag project in your neighborhood and we will include your event on our calendar and our website.  Check out our website at www.fermentchange.org or email [email protected] to get involved or make a suggestion.  Our next planning meeting is March 8th, email [email protected] to attend
