Interactive Workshops About the Microbes That Make Us Who We Are
Microbial Makeover workshops are a fun and informative way to learn about the importance of abundant and diverse microbes in our internal and external environments. From our Microbial Makeover Fundamentals workshop to our many Special Topic workshops, Microbial Makeover workshops will teach you all you need to know about what microbes are, how we can affect them in positive and negative ways, and how they affect our health for better or worse. Guided by our expert facilitators, Steve Fountain, MD, PhD, and Tasha Alison of Icebox Urban Farm, our workshops’ content ranges from informative presentations, accompanied by samplings of probiotic goodies, to fully hands-on, guided classes that will provide you with skills and techniques you’ll need to fully incorporate Microbial Makeover strategies into your life.
Contact us for information about how you can bring Microbial Makeover workshops to your group or organization.
