Fermenting seasonal produce

Greetings microbial hosts,

Culture Club is on the move in March. We have been invited to participate in the Macedon Ranges Sustainable Living Festival so we will be running our monthly workshop from there. The festival will be held on the corner of High and Forest Streets in Woodend. The hour long Culture Club workshop will take place in the Workshop Space.

MRSLF is being run in conjunction with the Woodend Community Farmers' Market. Festival goers can stock up on fresh local produce, wander among the many exhibits, join a free workshop, watch presentations on a variety of sustainable living topics, enjoy roving performances, movie screenings and more.

See you there!

Community Pickling Day wrap up

Wow! What a fabulous turn out we had for our annual community pickling day. Thank you to everyone who helped make the event such a huge success. The biggest thank you of all goes to this gentleman, Edward from Adsum Farmhouse in Glenlyon, who grew us 115kg of the most wonderful gherkins.

And thank you Mara Ripani for once again capturing the energy of an HRN event and the beauty of the participants. Not only did Mara come along and demonstrate how to peel garlic but she pickled 8kg of gherkins while also taking these beautiful photos:
