WetLand will reopen on the Schuylkill River at the Walnut Street Bridge in late August.
Below is a calendar of ongoing programs and events with the PPEH Lab.
Saturday, September 13th, at 12pm: Phickle: Demo Fermentation Class.
For millennia (that’s right!) humans have pickled vegetables using only the microbes that live in the soil and on the surface of those vegetables. Want to learn how to harness the power of bacteria to make nearly any vegetable into a truly healthful, probiotic living pickle with no hot stove required? Join Amanda Feifer, author of fermentation blog Phickle and the upcoming vegetable fermentation cookbook (Fair Winds Press 2015), as she helps you learn to love your bacteria and eat them too. You don’t need heat or vinegar, but a love for things that taste amazing is required!
September 7: From 1-2pm, Alison Gillespie, author of Hives in the City will do a reading of her acclaimed book on urban beekeeping, followed by a Q&A.
WetLand Opens! Stop by for some snacks from the gardens and Door to Door Organics, from 5-7pm.
