Whether you are brand new at kombucha home-brewing or if you are advanced and needing help to bring your art to the next level of awesomeness, I will teach you how to make KOMBUCHA and answer any questions you may have about the process.

Dirk is very knowledgeable and fun to work with. My veggies are still fermenting, but they look great. He also brought me a Kombucha SCOBY and gave me... his recipe, which was much appreciated. I'm super excited to consume this fermented bounty!show more

About Dirk McGurk

I'm an artist, engineer, musician, and farmer from South New Jersey. I'm certified in Permaculture Design, and I'm a practicing biomedical engineer. Over the past 6 years, I've been trying to reduce... my footprint and increase my handprint. I like the idea of not leaving a trace, but I aspire to leave a positive trace to make up for the many years that our society has been degrading our natural systems. I try to stay active in community groups and projects that care for the earth and each other. I also love to skateboard, play guitar, make computer music, hike, hunt mushrooms, forage wild edibles and medicinals, ride my dirtbike, and I'm also working on learning Russian!show more
