July 21st, 6:30-8 pm: Kombucha Making Class with Kerra Quinn
Gardening may stop for most of us at the windowsill, but have you ever  
farmed bacteria and yeast? If you've made sourdough bread, cheese,  
yogurt, sauerkraut, or beer, then you have! We at DCG wanted to  
venture into other avenues of making food, and where best to start in  
the heat of summer with a cool, sweet, refreshing, fizzy drink like  
kombucha?? Kombucha is a fermented sweet tea drink made from a SCOBY:  
a Symbiotic Collection Of Bacteria and Yeasts. According to some, it's  
a super healthy drink; to others, it's just tasty. If you'd like to  
come and learn how to make it yourself, please RSVP by replying to  
this email. The first 10 RSVPs will get a free SCOBY to take home from  
the class to start making their own kombucha! If there are more, you  
will be put on a call list to get a SCOBY as soon as one grows. Bring  
a quart canning jar with a lid ring or rubber band.
