Azizi
Azizi Berkland will discuss the probiotic benefits of traditional fermented foods.
If you have digestive problems, it will be almost impossible to permanently eliminate them unless you improve the balance between the beneficial and disease-causing bacteria that exist naturally in your gut. One of the most effective ways to do this is by eating traditional fermented foods rich in lactic acid–producing bacteria. These bacteria are what naturally make milk products go sour and vegetables ferment.
Lactic acid–producing bacteria are common in probiotic supplements—which is why traditional fermented foods are also known as probiotic foods.
Amarilys

Amaryllis Olivo from the Garden of Worker Bees will present a canning workshop. Canning produces flavorful, high-quality food that saves money, builds self-reliance and creates lifelong memories, often while carrying on cultural and family food traditions.
