Austin Durant, the principal workshop leader, has been playing with his food his whole life, and fermenting it for over 7 years.

In 2011, he founded Fermenters Club (fermenters.club) in his home town of San Diego to create a way for fermented food enthusiasts to make and share food. Since then, he has taught over 50 fermented food workshops across the United States and even in Mexico.

Durant has studied at Sandor Katz' five-day Fermentation Residency Program in middle Tennessee, where he learned hands-on how to make over a dozen fermented foods.

He also studied with Hannah Crum (aka the Kombucha Mamma"), best-selling author and founder of Kombucha Kamp and Kombucha Brewers International.

Since 2015, Durant has produced day-long fermentation festivals in two major metropolitan areas-- San Diego and Portland (Oregon).
