Event Details

Join us for a free introduction to fermenting foods workshop, learning how to preserve some of summer’s abundance for later on in the year.

Our food system and the climate crisis are inextricably linked. Not only is our Western industrial food system one of the main drivers of climate change, but a changing climate will also impact access and availability of food in Scotland, particularly for migrant and low income communities. We need a more resilient, climate-friendly and just food system in which everyone has access to nutritious and culturally appropriate food. Come and learn some of the skills to build more resilient, local food systems in our communities.

The Food & Climate Action Free School is a growing season of free workshops, sharing different skills related to food. It is organised by the Space in collaboration with the Food & Climate Action Project and a variety of wonderful partners.

All workshops are free but registration is essential. Participant numbers are limited due to Covid-19 so please only register if you intend to come and please cancel your ticket if you can’t make it anymore so that your spot can be given to someone on the waiting list.

In this workshop we will learn how to preserve the abundance of summer through fermentation. Rox Madeira, community herbalist, wild food and medicine foraging guide and nutritional therapist with Trossachs Wild Apothecary and Movement in Thyme CIC will show us some simple fermentation techniques in this workshop.
