This weekend, Ferment Change starts bubbling up in Oakland with a series of microbe-centric events, lessons, and tasting parties to benefit longstanding urban farming and environmental justice group City Slicker Farms.

With kombucha trades on Craigslist and Facebook trending harder than Tiger Woods, self-canned jam a Christmas-present go-to, and home-brewed beer practically a rite of passage for the post-trustafarian set, this year's edition of Ferment Change couldn't come at a riper time. The merriment lasts through May. For starters, there's a "culture swap" Saturday (tomorrow) in Oakland's Fruitvale neighborhood. Mixed drink and food purchases will, naturally, help support City Slicker Farms programs. There's a semi-secretive free beer-brewing demo on Sunday too. Write Chris to RSVP and snag the address.

Check out next week's happenings here, and stay tuned (or check the Awesome Pickle blog) for more. Details on tomorrow's event after the jump.
