This dinner is the final event in 2010's Ferment Change event series celebrating fermented foods and supporting urban agriculture and City Slicker Farms. Join us for a delicious multi-course meal featuring locally grown ingredients and fermented foods and drinks.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND BUT THE PRICE IS A LITTLE HIGH, please contact co-organizer Kent L. at firstname.lastname@example.org for discount codes. All proceeds from this event will benefit City Slicker Farms and its programs. Since the event organizers are all volunteers, most of the sales price will be a direct contribution!
