Sandy Katz reports:

Hello friends,

I hope this has been a good spring for you! It’s been a busy and productive time for me, finishing my new book The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved: Inside America’s Underground Food Movements (due out in October from Chelsea Green), setting up a biodiesel processing operation to make fuel from used fry oil, planting a garden, and arranging for a full summer of fermentation workshops.

Here is my summer schedule of workshops, continuing my mission of spreading fermentation fervor. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested, or to post on relevant events listings or listservs. Thanks!
