Pickling Day Wrap-Up

Wow wow wow wow. It's true that everybody loves pickles! Culture Club's inaugural Community Pickling Day was testament to this fact.

Thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate the wonder of wild fermentation, community participation and the strengthening of our local food system. Thank you to Meg Ulman for facilitating the event, to Mara Ripani for taking these gorgeous photos, and to Edward + Fiona at Adsum Farmhouse for growing the gherkins that made the day just so wonderful. Thank you soil, thank you bees, thank you glass jar manufacturers.. We have so much to be thankful for. #collectivehealth #collectivegratitude ♥

Penny Livingston-Stark has landed on Aussie shores and is looking forward to meeting us all tomorrow evening (Thursday Feb 2) at 7pm at Jubilee Lake.

It's going to be a lovely 27˚C day tomorrow - perfect picnic weather.

Pls bring a rug to sit on and a dish of local food to share.

If you're coming to the Community Pickling Day this Saturday - hooray! We can't wait to roll up our sleeves, put on our aprons and get our pickle on with you.

There are some extra things to bring along:

  • measuring cup
  • tablespoon measure

In case you missed our last post, here are the other things you need to bring along:

  • exact change if you've ordered Adsum Farm gherkins
  • as many clean jars + lids as you'll need for your pickles
  • salt, garlic cloves, peppercorns, bay leaves, fresh dill or dill seeds, mustard seeds, leaves containing tannin (grape, cherry, oak, horseradish, green or black tea)
