Want to Share some Videos?

All of our program videos for each event are the work of people that have been planning and working on them – sometimes for months – so your time is not wasted on stupid or uninteresting or blatantly promotional stuff. If people happen to be selling a book, or product or online classes or consultation services or generating customers or clients for a restaurant or bar or organization they are encouraged to include that in their videos. We can’t pay people what their time and efforts are really worth, so we encourage them to get the most out of the experience, even if it’s just learning how to present themselves.

You need to plan. Start filming now.

The actual process of fermenting and culturing can take time. Sometimes, days, often weeks, a few take months or years. So start filming now and send us a very small 30 second clip so we can’t prevent you from wasting a lot of time producing an inaudible or unviewable video. That happens all the time, and it can be easily prevented.

So if you would like to be involved with #Zymes2021plan now and let us know! kojiandpickles@gmail.com

Celebrate. This challah bread made from a recipe of a Jewish immigrant that made it to the US in the 70s. At that time she was already old and had no idea where her children were. So I was honored as she showed me how she made such light, fluffy and tasty bread and so many other things. She was grateful for all the ingredients I made sure she had to work her magic. Every day. She came to work every day whether or not she was scheduled. Like so many other immigrants to this country she made the lives of everyone else better. Although I’m overjoyed that we now have a new leadership team I haven’t ever forgotten about the children she left behind. Or the children that were put in cages and concentration camps in the US in the last four years. Back to work on Monday to fight for the people of Georgia, and the people of the entire US. Unfortunately the main thing that united us was our extreme repulsion and dislike of Trump, his family, and his enablers. Today his lying sentinels are still spreading out trying to foment hatred and sow division. They must be countered every day. And they must be held accountable. for everything they have done. For the kids. For the harassment and pain inflicted on people that just wanted to work. That just wanted to breathe. Celebrate but #neverforget. #sourdoughbread. It’s time to share bread and fish with everyone. #bidenharris2020 #ossoffforsenate #warnockforsenate #atlanta #georgia #fermentsandcultures #zymes2020

We think Vimeo is a great deal that let’s you control your content and avoid advertising. Vimeo does not push content you don’t want to see into your face like Instagram, nor restrict access to things you really want to see by applying algorithms that make you watch their advertising like Instagram does.

We purchased the most expensive Vimeo plan so you don’t need to. But it is one of the reasons we ask for fees for our events and screenings. We try to have a live chat portion for each event but if enough people do not register for each event we will not have them.


Fermentations and Cultures Event Hosts: Jelena Belgrave, Payal Shah, Nickawanna Shaw, Marika Groen, Anton Nicola, Peiman Khosravi, Ebonee McCorvey, Kirsten Shockey, Zoe Mitchell, Connie Chew, Dr. Johnny Drain, Maria Mantilla, Ken Fornataro, Julia Skinner, Robin Sherrill, Alex Gunuey, Zoe Mitchell, Dave Smoke-McCluskey, Amy Kalafa, Alex Gunuey, and Ed Ferrada.

After the entire event is over we hope to create a book and a documentary for sale that will benefit all the presenters and volunteer staff for the entire program.

Over 95% of those that have a Seasons Pass did not purchase it. Very hard working volunteers were given one as a way to thank them for volunteering for this International Fermentation Festival, but mostly to thank them as a way to thank them for creating videos for the events.

If you are only interested in a specific event, just register for that. Again, we need to raise money to cover our expenses. If you can’t afford anything, say that on the registration form.

If you don’t register for either a Seasons Pass or an event you’d like to attend you won’t get updates or announcements or passcodes for that event. Passcodes will be re-instituted in October.

Ferments and Cultures – Back to School – No Tuition Required


Some people are undergoing some very serious issues with fires, sickness, and work. They are doing what they can to get more videos. We’ll wait as long as they need.

You can no longer register for the September 13th Event. Purchase a Season Pass apply for a scholarship, or register for an upcoming event. The info on the Zoom call is below.

There are more videos up for our Fruits, Ferments and Probiotics already than anyone could watch and make nice supportive comments at Vimeo.com/culturesgroup anyway.

All three of Dr. Esther Miller’s recordings are up. They are a master class in fermentation. Cabbage microbiome wars!

With Viola Sampson’s two videos – fermented tomato ketchup and fermentation basics – and Greg Martinez’s basic review of Enzymes, it’s really a back to school extravaganza.

For your pets as well! Both of Dr. Tejas Sameer’s recordings on making healthy microbiome food for your animals are also posted.

Lots of videos to watch.

That’s just to start though.  Connie Chew’s Kangen Water is up. Savage Craic’s vegan fruit kimchi is up. Jennifer Solow’s two recordings, one on champagne tomatoes the other on herbs are up. 

Christine Krauss’ farinata, and her idli presentation have also been posted. and two new videos from Marika Groen of Malika Ferments have also been posted.

Actually we posted 70 videos for this event. Everyone said they missed all of KIrsten Shockey’s videos, and were desperate to re-watch all of Meredith Leigh, Jessica Alonzo and Misti Norris’ stuff so we reposted them as well. Aso please go watch them and please comment on them.

Yes, you do have to be registered with Vimeo. That’s where all these are housed. And for the next two weeks there is no registration fee required to watch although please go to our website and sign up for email to receive notice of some special upcoming events that you won’t find out about in other ways.

Yes, we’ll still take donations but you are like most people in the industry you’re hurting for money. So please don’t think twice about it.

I’ll be posting more videos over the next two weeks as they come in or are edited. We’ve extended the viewing period to September 28.

The French Ferments and Cultures will still take place on September 22 as planned, as will the September 28 event on The Silk Road (Halal/Kosher) – including India, Georgia, Israel, Palestine, etc.
