Learn the basics of making a raw fermented vinegar with Sarah Arrazola of St. Pete Ferments. While there are a multitude of ways to make your own vinegar, we’ll focus on on how to make vinegar from basic fruits. This workshop will explore traditional aeration methods using local and native plants. Attendees will also learn vinegar making as a practical tool to handle food waste.
Sarah Arrazola, founder of St. Pete Ferments, is a St. Petersburg native and proud Floridian. Previously, she was co-founder of the annual Florida Ferment Fest, and has worked on organic vegetable and permaculture farms.

Although our base price for this course is $35, Sweetwater is a nonprofit that puts on educational programs for elementary schools in the neighborhood and teaches them about food systems and basically where their food comes from. We also host community volunteer days and a farmer’s market every Sunday from November through May. You can donate to Sweetwater in addition to your course fee if you’d like to help us continue our programs. And if you want to get your hands dirty in our gardens you can contribute your time by volunteering Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday mornings from 9-12.
