Fermentation with Midori Farm comes to JCHS First Friday Speaker Series

Posted

Jefferson County Historical Society’s First Friday Speaker Series is now in full swing for 2021. Featuring craftspeople throughout the county and broader peninsula, the series aims to celebrate the art of making and to honor mediums of all kinds. 

Whether your interests lie in food and fiber or metal and wood, JCHS’s First Fridays are for sharing and learning.

On March 5, join Hanako Myers and Marko Colby, owners and operators of Midori Farm, for a lesson in fermentation. 

Through a process known as lactic acid fermentation, the duo will share the basics of naturally fermenting vegetables, as well as demonstrate the fundamentals of making sauerkraut and kimchi. The discussion will also include how Midori Farm products go from field to market. 

Midori Farm, a 29-acre organic farm located in Quilcene, produces high-quality organic vegetables, garden seedlings, and seeds. The farm also crafts its own traditionally fermented sauerkraut and kimchi from farm-grown produce. Committed to ecologically sound growing practices, the tools of close observation, attention to detail, and willful effort help them toward their goal of working with natural systems to grow delicious and nutritious food.

All of the series’ programs will be live-streamed via Zoom at 7 p.m. on the first Friday of each month. Series passes are available and provide annual support for the historical society; passes also grant access to the rest of the series’ jchsmuseum.simpletix.comprograms at a discounted rate. 

Register for the event or purchase a series pass at jchsmuseum.simpletix.com.
