~For the Love of Food & Drink~

Humans have been using fermentation for thousands of years to make beer or other alcoholic beverages, to preserve the harvest, and to give food that extra zing and flavor that other preparation techniques just don’t do. Join us for these two fun and informative workshops focusing on fermentation and all it’s glory.
Vegetable Ferments and Kombucha
– THIS CLASS IS FROM 9AM -NOON
. Join Sara Woods Kender for an afternoon of fermentation. We will discuss the basics in lacto-fermentation so you can create tasty and nutritious foods in your own kitchen focusing on Sara’s own recipes using cabbage, carrots, apples and a few other vegetables. Sara will take the mystery out of fermentation and show you just how easy it is. Part of the workshop will also focus on making kombocha, which uses a slightly different fermentation technique. Instead of using just lactic acid bacteria (LAB), kefir uses a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). Water kefir can be a great way to drink your probiotics!

From his Hoppin’ Robin RyePA, to his American Eagle IPA, his love of hops and his meticulous style shows in every sip of his craft beer. Mike will walk you through the steps of a normal day of brewing, showing the do’s and don’ts of basement brewing as well as sharing a few of his whole grain based beer recipes.

If you are coming from the western NH region, meeting up at The Fells proabably makes more sense. As people sign up and we get closer to the date, we can coordinate arrival times and carpooling details. they do not take group tours on the weekend, so let’s plan on getting there at 10am in Newbury.

Come and discover 83.5 conserved acres of beauty and tranquility; learn the legacy of its founder, diplomat and statesman John Milton Hay, during historic guided tours of the 22-room Colonial Revival home; explore forest succession and nature’s diversity while walking woodland trails; and enjoy the renowned gardens.The Fells is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a preservation project of The Garden Conservancy.

Garden in the Woods
Sunday August 7th, 2016 9am
180 Hemenway Rd
Framingham, MA 01701
We will work our carpooling and meet-up details as we get closer to the date since many may be coming form different areas of NH. this will be an informal tour of the gardens.
Only 21 miles from Boston, Garden in the Woods is a magical spot unlike any other botanic garden. With sharp, glacier-made ridges spilling into narrow valleys, its two miles of meandering paths lead through a towering canopy of trees to a pond, a wooded bog, numerous springs, and an ever-flowing brook.
Set among 45 acres, this living museum displays a wide variety of common and rare native plants displayed in naturalistic settings. For families looking to teach their children about the natural world, for adults who can’t decide between a stroll in the garden and a walk in the woods, and for anyone curious about the diversity of New England’s wild flowers and woody plants, Garden in the Woods offers a unique experience in a tranquil and beautiful place.
