Wed, Nov. 2, 4-6pm                                                     Kombucha   with kelle sunter

Saturday, Nov. 5, 10-12noon

While the origins of Kombucha remain shrouded in mystery there is much evidence to support that it has been around for thousands of years! Whether you want to feel better by drinking it (many do!),, just like the taste, or have never tried it, we invite you to get in touch with your inner "Ghengis" by learning more about this interesting elixir at this fun, informative presentation. We will be sampling different flavors, demonstrating how to make your own AND sending you home with your own culture to start brewing.


If you would like us to come and speak at a community activity or event to help inform your participants about the CORE project, please contact us.

We have had several community meetings to introduce the CORE project. If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer to help with our mission and goals, please do not hestitate to contact us -  or call  360-332-7435
