Workshops

Sauerkraut - Fermenting and preserving food

Fermentation is becoming more and more popular, for preserving, because it becomes delicious and offers a great way to refine your own harvest. In this workshop we will explore how exactly it works, what the principles of fermentation are and what actually happens microbiologically.

In keeping with the season, we will focus on the ingredients available at the moment: We will try our hand at different herb variations and venture into Korean Kim-Chi.

Speaker: Sebastian Kaiser (UFER-Projekte Dresden e.V.)

Let´s resonate: exploring our inner response with nature (cacao ceremony)

Legends of the Maya say that the cacao tree, its plants and seeds come to humans when we treat Mother Earth carelessly to re-establish the lost harmony and to open our hearts again. In this workshop, we will create a cacao ceremony together. Through the subtle and soft impact of raw cacao accompanied with movement, breathwork, sound and guided meditation, we will explore and deepen our bonds with our external and inner nature.

Please consider for the cacao ceremony:

  • Avoid to eat 2-3 hour before the ceremony
  • Avoid animal-based food, caffeine and alcohol 24 h before the ceremony
  • Take care to drink enough water before, during and after the ceremony
  • Ceremonial cacao consumption is not recommended for those with heart disease, epilepsy or taking antidepressants

Speaker: Katharina Artmann (Movement Workshops, Hoop Dance, pyro art)

Edible public urban green – A Dresden Perspective

The workshop offers an excursion to the flowering community garden at SLUB TextLab. Together with Stadtgärten e.V. and the coordinators of the transformation experiment "edible public urban green", participants will get to know some old and rare varieties on site and immediately propagate them for use at home. In addition to lemon and mint flavors, the workshop offers insights into the development of the “Zukunftsstadt” (future city) Dresden. Basics of plant science and inspiration for structuring transsectoral partnerships in terms of social innovations will be conveyed. As a special highlight, Stadtgärten e.V. offers participants free access to its extensive seed assortment and thus makes a fruitful contribution to the preservation of old and rare varieties.

Speaker: Paul Stadelhofer, Volker Croy (Stadtgärten e.V.)
