Whole Plant Fermenting: Beets from Kvass to Borscht with Olive Todd

March 10 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Lean into the magic of fermenting and get the most use out of your produce! Learn how to make a probiotic drink, fermented soup, and a nutrient rich pesto, all from one bunch of beets. Meet new yeasts, become familiar with the basics of lacto fermentation, and extend your food’s life cycle.


Meet Your Teacher

Olive is a bartender, fermenter, former Fox Haven Farm intern, and training herbalist. Their (almost) decade of work in the food industry, training in environmental safety, and passion for the intersection of wellness and creativity in food and drink has lead them to fermenting. Olive lives in Baltimore with their beloved dog, and they work for Clavel Mezcaleria, leading their bar fabrication lab, where they steward wild ferments and make everything needed to imbibe to your hearts delight.


About LandBack Tax
From 2022 onward, Fox Haven will donate $2 from each event ticket to the Kikeokan Foundation to pay LandBack tax, acknowledging our access to stolen Indigenous land. The Kikeokan Foundation is an Indigenous-led initiative working to restore ancestral land and sovereignty to the Piscataway and other Indigenous communities of the Chesapeake.


Weather Policy
