Events & Education

At Grateful Harvest we feel blessed to be part of the awakening that is occurring in regards to whole foods and good health. To be able to nourish and support our bodies, to share what we and others have found to be true is a great privilege. We are grateful for the opportunity to be part of the groundswell towards a cleaner life for all.

We run workshops and attend events, looking to facilitate the education of what fermented foods are and how then can be incorporated into a a normal life.
