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).

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

Lila will cover the history of kombucha, health benefits and how to do it at home safely.

There will be many delicious samples using teas and spices from the Oaktown Spice Shop!

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
