Ok, it is time for a last minute water kefir workshop. My kefir is growing so fast that I need to give some away!!!

Workshop Part 1 
Those who attend will be given some grains and instruction on how to make water kefir. I will include a recipe and resources. Please bring to the workshop a regular canning jar (pint or quart).  
I will provide you with all the instructions, ingredients and the recipe needed to make your first batch. So, you will go home prepared to make your first batch. As always, I don't sell my grains or scobies, but will give them away. 
 Workshop Part 2 
We will go over general guidelines to eating healthy. Topics will include homegrown probiotics, fermented foods, and our body's need for fatty acids. We will also discuss how to make healthy tasty alternatives to replace foods that we need to eliminate from our diets. Of course, you can expect me to fuss a bit about white table salt (poison) and artificial sweeteners (poison) ... but I will give you healthy alternatives! In fact, I will give you an opportunity to taste them.
NOTE: We will not make any other recipes during this workshop ... last time we barely made it through 2 of the three we had scheduled. Instead, I will tell you about recipes and provide any recipes you are interested in via email after our workshop. If you want milk kefir, water kefir or a kombucha scoby, remember those are available according to my supply. That being said; If you ask in advance, I should have some milk kefir grains and maybe some kombucha ready to give away on the day of the workshop.  As I always give away kefir and kombucha for free. Don't worry, if you accidentally kill the kefir I have given you, I will always be glad to give you more,
If you are interested in attending this workshop, please reply to this e-mail and let me know you plan to go. Due to limited space at this workshop, I will give you the meeting place location/address with your confirmation. Feel free to invite your friends, just make sure you inform me, so they are added into my headcount.:)  I am looking forward to seeing you there. Seize the day!!!  Barbara
