About the Author

Tara Whitsitt is a nomadic artist and educator whose passion for growing food and teaching fermentation inspired the grassroots educational project Fermentation on Wheels: Tara drives around the country sharing starter cultures, along with the history and science of fermentation, and the stories she gathers on the road. Along with millions of microbes, she travels with a gray panther-like cat named Franklin. She lives in Eugene, Oregon.


"The Johnny Appleseed of Pickling." - New York Times

"[Whitsitt] takes readers on an entertaining and informative journey as she drives a converted school bus across America and spreads the gospel of fermentation . . . On her magic school bus, she is a veritable Ms. Frizzle, sharing the science and benefits behind the healthy microorganisms of our inner ecosystem." - Publishers Weekly

"Tara Whitsitt is a fellow fermentation revivalist doing tremendous work raising awareness about fermented foods and beverages. Fermentation on Wheels is a mobile fermentation recruitment station, inviting folks to become more aware of how our food is produced and the invisible life forces that facilitate some of our greatest delicacies." - Sandor Katz, author of WILD FERMENTATION and THE ART OF FERMENTATION

"Tara is a force, crusading through time and geographical space she proselytizes the evolving human relationship with fermented foods. Fermentation on Wheels is a living breathing work of art devoted to teaching others about food, sustainability, and community." - Meaghan & Shane Carpenter, HEX Ferments, Baltimore, MD

"Tara's dedication to teaching the craft of food fermentation is wonderful, and what inspired me even more is her infectious 'do-what-you-love' spirit. What a happier world it would be if more people followed their bliss like Tara." - Austin Durant, Founder, Fermenters Club, San Diego, CA
