Ferment Change for the East Bay!

Hello Fermentors and Friends,

The Ferment Change planning committee is happy to announce the launch of our new website at http://www.fermentchange.org
and to announce our Ferment Change series for May 2010 to benefit Urban Ag Heroes "City Slicker Farms".

We are calling out to all pickle makers, beer brewers, sour dough wranglers, winos, et al to get involved and support Ferment Change 2010.

Ferment Change is a string of events each spring that include workshops,
skill shares, dinners, bicycle tours, parties, and potlucks to benefit the
work of City Slicker Farms and their trailblazing Backyard Garden Program.
We organize a small series of events that range from free to not free to
support urban ag projects in the East Bay.

FERMENT CHANGE "A fermented feast"
Our main event is hosted an the Humanist Hall in Oakland and gathers 400+
attendees for live music, skill shares, culture swaps and a fermented food
feast in the form of a community potluck. 100's of homemade pickles,beers,
krauts, kefirs, and more to share. Email info@fermentchange.org to tell us
what you are bringing or to get on our email list.

The Ferment Change planning committee plans a series of events that will
be listed on our webpage to benefit City Slicker Farms. Be an urban ag
hero and host your own satellite to benefit City Slicker Farms, Haiti
Relief, or an urban ag project in your neighborhood and we will include
your event on our calendar and our website. Check out our website at
