Rhythm of the Beet

The beet goes on!

Please join us for a pink stained April Culture Club as we praise, honour and delight in the delicious vegetable that is beetroot.

Thank you to Captains Creek Organic Farm for supplying us with the beets, which you can purchase in advance and take home with you to chop, grate and experiment with, armed with the new knowledge you will learn during the workshop:

Saturday April 7 
9.30am - 12.30pm
Senior Citizens room (behind the Daylesford Town Hall)
Cost: FREE!

The cost of the beetroots is $3/kg. Please send your orders to by Wednesday April 4 with the number of kilos you'd like to buy. Please bring exact change on the day and a bag for your beets.

The workshop is a hands off workshop. The beets you purchase are to take home and ferment.
