Santa Barbara Fermentation Festival
September 10, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm$30 – $65
CEC is a proud returning sponsor of the 7th annual Santa Barbara Fermentation Festival. Part of a larger grassroots movement to #rethink food, events like this can help us change the way we view our food, our connection to the earth and our ability to thrive.
Hear from local and regional experts who share the history, farming practices, benefits and preparation of fermented, cultured and traditional foods that nourish our gut microbiome. We collaborate with cutting edge researchers who are defining the important role beneficial bacteria play in our health and the health of our planet.
All ages are invited to enjoy samples, participate in hands-on activities, and learn from 75+ regional fermented foods exhibitors and more than fifty presenters on four stages. This includes four DIY fermentation stations to make and take your own fermented food, a 21+Farm-to-Bar area, and live music.
Founded by mother and daughter team Lynn Hartman and Katie Hershfelt, the festival aims to revitalize traditional food preparation and promote local food and farming. Profits from the festival support projects that further this mission.
