Eating hyper-processed foods can lead to nutrient deficiency, feeling lethargic and an increase in plastic waste. Fermenting foods can reverse these effects, while pickling perks up a boring meal! Cheap, easy and good for your gut, this DIY session will give you all the basic knowledge to get started, plus we'll be using surplus food saved from landfill.

Up until its recent closure, Sean has been running the Brixton Pound Cafe; a ‘Pay What You Can’ venue offering decent food; and a shared community space. Read more about the cafe here. Among other things, Sean will be talking to us about the ‘Pay What You Can’ concept, how it works, and whether or not we can bring similar ideas to Barking and Dagenham.

If in doubt about the timings, location or physical requirements of any of volunteer activities, please send enquiries to contact@companydrink.info
