June 11th: Brew Kombucha at Home with Herbs and Spices (Albany)

June 11th: Brew Kombucha at Home with Herbs and Spices (Albany)

Are you a fan of kombucha? Learning to brew it yourself is easy and super cost effective. The 2,000 year old tradition has a rich history of health benefits like improving digestion, boosting energy and helping your immune system. Kombucha is made from sweetened tea that's been fermented by a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (a.k.a SCOBY). Lila will cover the history of kombucha, health benefits and how to do it at home safely.

All attendees will receive a Kombucha starter kit including: a brewing vessel, SCOBY, starter liquid, cloth cover, and illustrated instructions.

There will be many delicious samples using teas and spices from the Oaktown Spice Shop and participants will receive a 10% discount on any in-store purchases made following the workshop. (Discount is valid the night of the workshop only.)

 

About Lila Volkas:

Hello! I'm Lila. I am a Holistic Nutritionist and freelance food illustrator and writer based in Berkeley. I believe food is our medicine. Food has played a major role in my own healing journey and allows me to connect with others and help them deepen their relationship with what they put in their body. I have been teaching kombucha workshops for the last 5 years and have shared my SCOBY with over 400 people. Kombucha is more than a delicious tasting drink, but also creates a beautiful interconnected web of people who continue the brewing tradition and all nourish a piece of the same original "culture." www.lilavolkas.com
