Forage and Fermentation

Saturday, September 15th, 2018 6:30-9:30pm


Join us for a fun night of music, food, drinks and education!

We'll have educators throughout the event chatting about local foraging and fermenting. Education partners include: California Native Plant Society of Monterey Bay, Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz, Big Sur Foragers Festival, and Happy Girl Kitchen.

Custom foraged or fermented cocktails by The Drink Mixtress will excite your taste buds! Local wines from Flywheel Wines and District 7, and beer from Alvarado Brewing Company will also be available. 

Special pop-up display for one-night-only will be a selection of items from our permanent collection including botanical paintings by Sophie M. Fauntleroy, specimens of local flora from our herbarium, as well as a variety of eating and drinking vessels from around the world.

Live music with Lillie Lemon inside and Linda Arceo in the garden, plus a few surprises!

Come hungry because we will have Poke Lab Food Truck parked right in front of the museum, with tables outside to enjoy the late summer evening.

Foraging is searching for wild food resources.
Fermentation is a metabolic process that consumes sugar in the absence of oxygen. The products are organic acids, gases, or alcohol.
