Making your own natural products is inexpensive, easy and transformative! Take a stand against chemicals in ecosystems, bodies and homes and find freedom from what marketing tells you you need for beauty & cleanliness. This 1.5 hour workshop will revolutionize you & your family for decades to come!

At the Odd Gumnut, we make all of our own body and home cleaning products. In this workshop, we will kick off with the truth of what chemical products are doing inside our bodies and then empower you with easy and effective alternatives for shampoo, conditioner, hair gel, dish soap, laundry detergent, face wash & moisturizer, toothpaste, deodorant, and home disinfectant. Knowledge is power! So inform yourself and equip yourself with the alternatives. You will never go back!

Fermenting our foods has amazing health benefits. It develops complex flavors, enables our bodies to uptake much more nutrition, preserves foods in times of bounty, and fills our bodies with beneficial bacteria that boost our immune system, our mood, and our overall health.

Best part is, it is easier than you think! No better time to strengthen that immune system :)

In this workshop we will cover some easy wins so you get fermenting straight away (sauerkraut, kimchi, natural sodas, yogurt, ginger beer) as well as discuss the myriad options you have to ferment just about anything. 

This is Laura’s favorite workshop to teach and see learner’s excitement when introduced to the magical world of transformation through fermentation. Not one to miss.

Good bread is tough to find! The shops are full of bleached, refined white breads that leave our digestive system inflamed, bloated and over-burdened. Traditionally fermented sourdough bread nourishes our whole body by making the nutrients in the grains bio-available. 

Reclaim your right to good bread with this all-levels workshop. Baking your own bread is much easier than you might think! We will learn the biological reason fermented grains are better for us, which grains are the healthiest choice, how to create & care for your sourdough starter and how to make, knead and bake your dough. We will also discover other uses for your extra starter - think sourdough pizza, chocolate cake  & waffles :)

Leave with a portion of Laura's 2 year old (!) sourdough starter to kick start your baking journey.

"Food after all is life… Every time you eat, you can make a massive change. You can throw your weight behind ecosystems, behind diversity, behind farmers. Or you can throw your weight behind greed, behind super profits, behind ill health that is killing both this planet and its people. Make your choice. It’s easy"  - Vandana Shiva
