About the Instructor

Dr. Jeremy Ferrel is the Sustainable Technology Program Director and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sustainable Technology and the Built Environment at Appalachian State University.

“I have been making kimchi from garden veggies since 2005 and brewing kombucha just as long. I have taken workshops with Sandor Katz and studied the biochemical process of fermentation. I am a true believer in the value of healthy gut bacteria. We eat kimchi daily at our house (with essentially every savory meal) and make roughly 1 gallon every month.”
