Scrumptious sourdough: gluten free + CSB

How do I make a sourdough starter?
How do I keep it alive?
Is it OK to put my starter in the fridge?
How much starter do I need to use?
Can I make GF sourdough bread?

Come along to our June Culture Club to find out the answers to all these questions, plus more.


This exciting workshop will be in three parts:

First up, the talented Katy + Alison from Daylesford's Two Fold Bakehouse will be talking all things bread, grain, milling and baking, and why they decided to run their business as a CSB - Community Supported Baking - and what that means in real terms for them and their customers.

Second up we are thrilled to have special guests all the way from Hepburn, Chris + Loïque, who are avid home bakers who specialise in the art of gluten free sourdough baking. Yes, it can be done! Come and learn how.

Calling all bakers: how do you make your sourdough? What water to flour ratio works for you? Please bring in some of your home baked sourdough bread to share + discuss. And perhaps any baking books you have found useful.


Hope you have an invigorating week. See you all on June 2!

In partnership with...

HRN is excited to announce that we have teamed up with several organisations we feel are doing hugely important work. 

The first partnership is with the Central Vic Climate Action, Hepburn Wind, SHARE and Localising Leanganook to present a screening of Stop Adani followed by a Q&A with recently returned blockaders from central Victoria.

The second partnership is with Z-NET Hepburn Shire who is currently seeking 1,000 households to complete their Zero Net Emissions Survey, which you can take here.

Would you like to be part of Hepburn Shire's journey to zero-net emissions? Z-NET would like to hear how we, the residents of Hepburn Shire, currently use energy in our homes. How can the community as a whole manage the transition to renewable sources and zero-net emissions?

To help create a meaningful community profile the first step is to take the household survey.

So far over 400 households having already completed the survey. However, they would like to reach 1000 households to create a more meaningful and representative profile of our community. If you haven’t already done so, please let Z-NET know about energy consumption in your household by filling in the Z-NET.



You can take the survey here.
