If you’ve ever found yourself thinking, “Man, with all the money I’ve spent on kombucha, I could’ve bought a house! Oh, how I wish I knew how to make this bubbly beverage myself,”  while piling bottles upon bottles of kombucha into your shopping cart, then this workshop is tailor-made for you: On May 3rd, Greensgrow Farms is hosting a kombucha fermentation workshop with Philly’s very own fermentation enthusiast, Amanda Feifer of Phickle.




If you're unfamiliar with kombucha, here's the lowdown: Kombucha is a fermented tea drink that's been around for over 2,000 years. The popular drink is packed with live good-for-you bacteria and, while scientific research is lacking when it comes to the drink's health benefits, many credit the beverage with working digestive wonders, along with boosting energy and detoxifying the body.

At the workshop, participants will learn how to brew their own probiotic-filled bottles of kombucha in two ways: Continuous process and single process. Folks will walk away with helpful bottling tips and techniques for adding flavor and fizz. Plus, they’ll take home their very own SCOBY — the culture used to make kombucha — and some starter tea, to get their kombucha-brewing started at home.

You can get more info and register for the workshop here.

$35, May 3rd from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Greensgrow Community Kitchen at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church, 2139 East Cumberland Street, Philadelphia.
