Girragirra Green Living


Luxury accommodation in Forbes NSW

Workshops at Girragirra are all about sharing skills and knowledge to help build a resilient community. Oh and having fun, let’s not forget the fun bit.

Check out our Sourdough and Farmhouse Ferments workshops below.

Sourdough Workshops:

Have you ever wanted to learn how to make and bake a loaf of beautiful, health giving sourdough bread? 

We limit our Sourdough workshop to ten lucky people so you get to make a loaf with your own sticky little fingers, from start to finish….and watch it grow and develop before your eyes!

Wendy will guide you through the process with lots of hands on practice and a complete set of notes to take home along with your own loaf to bake next morning.

And you get your very own starter/ mother / bread pet …whatever you want to call it. We call ours Princess Berta.


This is a full day workshop starting with a delicious morning tea on arrival at 10am for a 10.30 start and a generous lunch featuring goodies we make right here at Girragirra. Finishes around 4 pm

Cost: $220 inclusive of morning tea and lunch.

All classes limited to 10 people.
