Gut Feelings: A Discussion about the Microbes You Can’t Live Without

Wednesday, November 19, 2014 – 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Whether you like it or not, there are ten times more bacterial cells in your body than human cells. Come learn about the unseen yet indispensable world of microorganisms as we trace them from soil to food to gut. What role do these tiny creatures play in your health, and in soil health? How are gut microbes affected by what you eat? Why have fermented foods long been important to traditional cultures? 

Moderator:
Dr. Daphne Miller, family physician and author of Farmacology and The Jungle Effect

Speakers:
Kathryn Lukas, kraut maven and founder of Farmhouse Culture;
Dr. Kate Scow, professor of soil science, soil microbial ecologist, and director of the Russell Ranch Sustainable Agriculture Facility
Kristen Earle, senior graduate student conducting research in the famed Sonnenburg microbiology lab at Stanford.

Hosted by CUESA and Kitchen Table Talks, this talk will be followed by a reception with fermented foods to taste.
