Tuesday, July 5, 2022
5:30pm - 7:00pm
Intervale Center

 

*this class is sold out!*

In this workshop we will discuss the basics of lactofermentation, the science behind how it works, the health benefits, and how you can do it yourself. This class is designed as part lecture, part hands-on demonstration. The first part of the session will be discussion based, followed by getting our hands dirty making mixed vegetable ferments. No experience is necessary, but everyone should come to class with a curious mind and expect to create a jar of a ferment and leave with fermentation fervor!

This class will be led by Christa Gowen, a fermentation enthusiast who has been turning stray vegetables into delicious ferments for over a decade. Her favorite is radicchio with fennel seed and lemon zest. She lives in Essex with her husband and son. Class will be held outdoors at the Intervale Center.

10:00am - 12:00pm
Hinesburg Town Forest

Join Ethan Tapper, the Chittenden County Forester, for “Understanding Forest Management,” a walk of an active forest management project at the Hinesburg Town Forest (HTF).

Done well, modern forest management can be restorative and regenerative, helping create more diverse, vibrant, resilient forests with great wildlife habitat, helping forests recover from the effects of human land use and creating old forest attributes sooner than they would naturally occur. At the same time, forest management generates local, renewable resources which get turned into building materials, paper, power and more. Like local food, local wood supports our working landscape and our rural communities and mitigates the use of resources produced under more adverse ecological and social conditions elsewhere in the country or the world. We will walk the management area and talk about forests, forest management, and forest ecology. Please bring an open mind and all those questions you’ve never had a chance to ask about forest management.

This walk will happen “rain (mud) or shine.” Participants should be ready to spend a couple hours outdoors walking over uneven and potentially slippery surfaces in whatever weather we find ourselves in, and also to spend extended periods of time standing and talking. Directions on where to meet will be sent to participants in advance.
