Lauren Elbe

I am a fermentress and herbalist. I am a passionate student of the tiny, invisible, magical, microbial world. I love knowing how to create an environment where goodness thrives. I am very interested in integrating local plant medicine with every day foods. I love sharing recipes for herbal fermented veggies and alcoholic brews through workshops. I have been living in St’at’imc territory in the back country of Lillooet B.C. for two years and I am loving learning about forest stewardship and gardening from the elders that live around us. I am passionate about reclaiming and supporting our local food system by re learning and sharing ancient food preservation techniques. I am driven by the idea that our collective wellness comes from a relationship with the earth and specifically the land around where we live.

Lauren Elbe will be sharing Fermenting Vegetables in Herbal Brine.
