------------------------------------------------------------
Mark your calendars for an
Introduction to Lactofermentation demonstration
put on by CJ Puotinen
Saturday, July 9th from 10:00 to 11:30 am at
The Natural Grocers market in Helena.


Natural Grocers will provide vegetables, culture starter, and other materials, and attendees will work in groups to create lactofermented foods for people to take home and enjoy. There will be homemade samples, and the store stocks fermented foods to sample a nd give away as door prizes.

Natural Grocers does not take reservations, so it's first-come first-served. The back of the store has a kitchen/classroom area, and the demonstration begins promptly at 10:00, so plan to come a few minutes early!

Participants can also sign up then for the Helena Community Gardens lactofermentation worskhop being held in October at the Plymouth Church.

In addition to being an EFT practitioner and trainer, Emotion Code Practitioner, Body Code Practitioner, and Professional Health and Wellness Coach, CJ Puotinen is the author of 23 books and more than 100 magazine articles, most of them dealing with holistic health.

Thanks to everyone who came down to support HCG.  It was a busy night with lots of Gardeners, plus many other people, including Alive at Five-ers.

It was fun to socialize and visit, and the delicious appetizers (stuffed mushrooms, apple bars, spanikopita, chex mix...) were a hit and GREAT PR!
Hats off to the organizers and goodie-makers!
