In Love with Fermentation

an interview with Sandor Katz

Sandor KatzIn this week’s episode, Sandor Katz speaks to us about the fascinating world of fermented foods. He introduces us to fermentation as food activism; the association of traditional fermented foods and good health and longevity; easy ways of making fermented food in your home; entering in relationship with (micro)ecology: our bacterial allies; how the art of fermentation is attracting growing numbers of people.

Sandor Ellix Katz is a self-taught ferementaiotn experiementalist. he wrote “Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods” (Chelsea Green, 2003) – which Newsweek called “the fermenting bible” – in order to share the fermentation wisdom he had learned, and demystify home fermentation. Since the book’s publication, Katz has taught hundreds of fermentation workshops across North America and beyond, taking on a role he describes as a “fermentation revivalist”.  He is also the author of “The Art of Fermentation” – his latest book, an in-depth exploration of the topic – and “The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved: Inside America’s Underground Food Movements” (Chelsea Green, 2006).

Awakening the Original Instructions

an interview with Jon Young

Jon_YoungFor the last 26 years, tracker and author Jon Young has been mentoring folks in the nearly lost art of understanding bird and animal language, connecting people with Nature to inspire global and personal regeneration. Just as science is beginning to see the credibility in this ancient skill, Jon has been leading communities world-wide to get these skills back through lectures, workshops, media—but mostly through training and mentoring, based on a lifetime of personal experience combined with the input and guidance of cultural specialists from around the world. His newest book is “What the Robin Knows”.

Jon speaks with Joanna about: a childhood spent outside in nature; ecstatic experiences with nature; a vital, modern sense of wildness; attuned to the spiritual mystery in nature; innate meditation; the ancient gift of gratitude.

Our Ancestors The Bacteria

an interview with Sandor Katz

Speakers at Connecting For Change (2012)

Sandor Ellix Katz is a self-taught fermentation experimentalist who wrote the book “Wild Fermentation” in order to share the fermentation wisdom he had learned, and demystify home fermentation. Since the book’s publication in 2003, Katz has taught hundreds of fermentation workshops across North America and beyond, taking on a role he describes as a “fermentation revivalist.” Through these workshops, Katz met many different food activists—varied in their specific projects but united by a passion to bring food back to earth—who inspired him to write “The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved”. Newsweek called Wild Fermentation “the fermenting bible,” while the New Yorker wrote that Katz’s books “have become manifestos and how-to manuals for a generation of underground food activists.” His latest book is “The Art of Fermentation”, (Chelsea Green, 2012).

Youth Taking Action

an interview with Misra Walker

Speakers at Bioneers By The Bay Connecting For Change (2011)

When Barretto Point Park opened in the Hunts Point section of the South Bronx in 2006, it marked a major accomplishment —becoming the only riverside park in the neighborhood and one of the few greens space in the heavily industrialized area. But Misra noted that there was no transportation to and from the park and that pedestrians had to endure a smoggy walk through a key transportation route that serves some 15,000 heavy trucks daily. Misra and her teen advocacy group, ACTION, lobbied the New York transit authority (MTA) for a bus route to be extended to include stops at the park. Misra’s campaign was successful, and a seasonal city shuttle bus now serves the park in the summer, taking 4,000 Bronx residents to green space they might not otherwise be able to access. Misra is a 2010 Brower Youth Award recipient.

Clean Energy Solutions

an interview with Paul Epstein

Clean energy solutions can stimulate business opportunities and job creation. All proposed technologies must also be examined as to their health and safety, environmental impact, the economic feasibility and benefits. Life cycles analysis can help separate those technologies that are “no regrets” -and can be invested in today- from those that require further study.
