Our team met while living in the Virgin Islands. All searching for something to help bolster our diets on an island where fresh produce can be scarce, we started brewing kombucha. We each fell in love how we felt after incorporating the ferment into our lives, and became equally enthralled by the art of making and flavoring such a nuanced beverage. Though paradise was hard to leave, we yearned to be part of a community rich with farmers, growers and makers like ourselves.
We were, and continue to be, amazed at the Lowcountry's abundance--in both diverse raw ingredients waiting to be utilized, as well as its communities of resourceful, resilient, and kind people.
