Why make kombucha? What the heck is it?

  • It’s loaded with probiotics to improve overall health, especially gut health and the immune system!
  • Easy & fun
  • Inexpensive! Pennies per serving

Rebecca will discuss the health benefits of kombucha, including what makes it so healthy, and then provide a step-by-step demonstration on how to make and bottle kombucha. There will be kombucha tasting of several different flavors as well as ample time for Q&A from the class.

Each person will receive directions and their very own S.C.O.B.Y. to start making kombucha at home!
