Kombucha & Ginger Beer

Want to learn to make homemade Kombucha and Wild Fermented root drinks like Ginger Beer, Turmeric Beer, and Sunchoke Beer? They are all fermented to be full of probiotics (healthy gut!), nonalcoholic (less than .5 percent), and simple to make. Kombucha is a fermented tea that acts as an adaptogen, which helps the body maintain homeostasis. The wild root drinks bring wild yeasts and bacteria from your environment into your system, which makes for a happy gut. The main ingredients are simple; water, the root or SCOBY, and something sweet.

Come sit among the fields of vegetables and fruits at Finca Tres Robles and practice the ancient art of fermentation. Leave with a flavored bottle of your favorite drink or a starter culture to make your own.

10% of the proceeds to this class go to AIDA and Survival International. Two organizations that champion tribal peoples and defend their land and culture. As we celebrate their wisdom in our class we will also be sending support for their way of living to continue.
