Counting Our Microbes Thursday 25th November, 4.30pm – 6.30pm
On Thursday 25th November 4.30pm – 6.30pm Plenitude is running the ‘Counting our Microbes’ workshop here on Rock Farm. The workshop focuses on making your own kefir lemonade and is designed for both parents and their children to learn about the microbiome through an art activity: stencilling microbe shapes onto a tote bag. It’s never too early to start those healthy gut habits.
Plenitude is a small, female owned business based in Cavan. Owned and ran by Niamh O’Donnell, Plenitude adapts traditional sauerkraut recipes filled with the diversity of bacteria that can promote healthy gut flora. Their products don’t just focus on health either, they are made to taste great while also doing great things for your body. Using only locally grown organic or foraged vegetables Plenitude creates flavours including apple and beetroot, pear and fennel & seaweed and carrot so it’s easy and delicious to look after your gut health.
Over the last 5 years Gut Health has become an important priority for many. Google searches for the term have quadrupled since 2016 with a vast number of us realising the importance of maintaining a healthy gut flora. Books like the Emeran Mayer’s The Mind Gut Connection as well as various wellness companies have helped bring gut health and the microbiome to the forefront of people’s mind. However, for many, the process of integrating healthy gut practices into every day life can seem daunting. That’s were Plenitude comes in.
