Created at the leading-edge of the fermentation, community, and sustainability conversation, Fermentation on Wheels adds a unique dimension to the advancement of healthy, resilient food cultures, nationwide.

Based out of a 40–foot nomadic art space and now in our sixth year of operation, Fermentation on Wheels and its founder, Tara Whitsitt, empower communities with a sustainability-based lifestyle and inspire with a rich, proven array of convivial gatherings— potlucks, starter-culture swaps, workshops, and farm, school and community visits—we emphasize a friendly, accessible, down-home do-it-yourself approach to fermentation practice and education.

Tara’s new book, Fermentation on Wheels: 50 Do-It- Yourself Recipes from Sauerkraut, Kombucha, and Yogurt to Miso, Tempeh, and Mead, published in October 2017 by Bloomsbury Publishing now lends powerful, additional impetus and credibility to our efforts, as well as to the fermentation and good food movements.

We host donation-based events as well as private consultations and speaking engagements for a fee. Particularly keen to support food-vulnerable and food-unaware communities, we provide sliding-scale services, scholarships, and non-monetary exchanges where appropriate.

Fermentation on Wheels has collaborated with organizations and businesses such as Food Forward, FoodCorps, and Just Food, as well as dozens of farms and homesteads. You can read about our work in nationally-acclaimed publications such as the New York Times, NPR, and Civil Eats

When I reach $500 per month, I’ll start a YouTube series and release two educational fermentation videos every month.
