Vegetables & Fruits

We encourage eating vegetables (preferably organic, biodynamic, and local whenever possible). Vegetables may be cooked, raw, juiced and fermented. They are wonderful blended into soups and stews, steamed and served with butter, in salads with home-made dressing and many more ways.

Fermented Vegetables:

Of particular interest to the Eugene Chapter are fermented fruits and vegetables. The Eugene Chapter created the Kraut Pounder as a fund-raiser for our chapter, and to help people make their own fermented foods. Please see our other website: for more info.

The Eugene Chapter holds workshops and teaches classes on fermentation as well as other topics. Please sign up for our newsletter to be notified about upcoming events.
