Learn to make your own kombucha with water, tea, sugar, and a culture! Taste kombucha made with different kinds of tea!

Gretchen Westlight will present instructions on how to make this
enzyme-rich healthful tonic, and offer tastings to demonstrate a
variety of flavors. Commercial kombucha brands will be provided for
taste comparison.

Kombucha culture is a SCOBY: Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast
(it's often called a "mushroom," but there is no fungus involved).
Every batch of kombucha that you ferment will grow a second culture,
so you'll be able to make your own for as long as you like, and soon
be giving your culture "babies" away, too! Each participant will
receive their own culture and set of instructions.

Annoyed with the Farm

Why charge so much? Like your article says, the babies are made as part of the process and are plentiful. Making your own isn't a hard process, anyone can read an article on line and learn how in 10 minutes. So why charge people over ten dollars for something that pops up in the free section of craigslist once a month? You can go to proper eats and get babies and instructions for free. Go to food not bombs and ask if anyone has extra babies and you will find someone.
