Convivial Kitchen and Garden (New)

Convivial Kitchen and Garden is about skill-sharing – gathering as a small group to learn recipes, gardening skills, and other useful things.  It’s community-based, so you can see what the people around you know, and share your own skills as well.

We ran this project over a five-year period.  Our first event in 2014 to kick things off focused on kimchi fermentation, and from there we’ve run well over a dozen workshops.  People learned how to make pizza dough, sourdough, make bee hotels, and do a host of other things.  It was a valuable experience for all involved.

If you’d like to learn more, or are interested in doing your own thing and would like us to spread the word, please shoot us an email at transitiondarebin@gmail.com.
