Join us for a special, members-only series of the citizen science project, “Sourdough for Science,” in partnership with the Rob Dunn Lab at NC State University. Go on a “tour” of the science of sourdough with Erin McKenney, MS, PhD, a microbial ecologist from Rob Dunn’s lab. You’ll learn about bread and how it links us all, and the science behind yeast and sourdough. We’ll get you started with an experiment that you can take home and see how it grows (and tastes)!
