About the Teacher
We are a small business in Eugene Oregon focused on live culture soy free tempeh made with locally sourced organic beans, nuts and grains. We are interested in teaching a workshop on how to grow tempeh at home. Through this workshop we hope to re awaken people to the knowledge  that tempeh is a mycoproduct - a yummy mass of living breathing fungus!  We also want to show people how easy it is to make, and through this hope to inspire people to eat more tempeh & support their gut, local farmers & themselves. Our names are Margaret and Sam! we have been experimenting with tempeh for about 2 year now & we would love an opportunity share this passion with others.
