Event Details

Learn how to make simple, nutritious & delicious ferments in your own home

We’ve designed this practical, hands-on learning experience just for you, showing you how to make:

  • Tempeh (soybeans inoculated and fermented with rhizopus spores),
  • Sauerkraut and kim chi (both wild ferments based on salt and cabbage),
  • Pickles (with vegetables),
  • Country wine (using seasonal fruits),
  • Sourdough bread, and
  • Yoghurt.

Ready to book in for this edible greatness? Just scroll down to the very bottom of this page!

Skills that will be useful for the rest of your days! We’ll also feed you a delicious and nutritious lunch featuring all things fermented from locally sourced, chemical-free and homegrown produce.


Students receive

  • A jar of sauerkraut (that you’ll make on the day),
  • A tempeh kit (tempeh spores, soybeans and instructions) so you can make your own at home,
  • A sourdough bread starter,
  • A scrumptious lunch where we’ll feed you with as many fermented things we can make, and
  • Extensive notes on how to start or keep fermenting food for the rest of your life.

Teaching Team

988952_931631203537792_8210469918187294265_nOver the past 12 years, Anton Vikstrom has dappled, explored and has now completely integrated ferments into his daily life.  There is always something bubbling on his kitchen bench or in the pantry and always unique and scrumptious smells wafting through the air.  He especially enjoys teaching the fermentation process as it should be, simply.  He breaks the processes down into easy steps so that anyone, yes anyone, can get fermenting – anywhere, any time. That’s him in the photo with a bunch of homegrown hops used to make homebrew! You can read more about him here.

Like Anton, she relishes the simplicity of fermenting and teaching others the joys of transforming your kitchen into a permanent fermentation fest and getting your gut flora party started! You can read more about Hannah here..


Kate Flint runs The Garden Shed and Pantry in Cygnet where she runs regular sourdough classes for southern Tasmania. We’re lucky to have her along as a guest teacher to introduce you to the wonderful ways of sourdough bread in all its glory!
