Fermental Health is an ongoing project by artist, environmentalist and cook Sean Roy Parker exploring the use of wild abundance and urban surplus in recipes, ferments and herbal remedies. Combining an amateur enthusiasm for foraging & scavenging with his activism for food justice and decommodification, Parker promotes the benefits of diet diversity and increased access to traditional knowledge and skills. Fermental Health documents a dynamic collaboration between human and non-human bodies (plants, yeasts, bacteria).

For this unique collaboration Lewis Prosser, a member of the Strawcrafters’ Guild, has created woven sheaths using heritage wheat from his home in the Vale of Glamorgan. The sheaths are made by braiding 6 strands of thatching wheat into a miniature amphora shape. The technique of weaving wheat is a working-class craft which originated in pre-Christian Britain, a time when a successful harvest was determined by the whims of spirits.  The glass bottles are sourced from industry surplus, and the leather lace is made using scraps from a local sofa manufacturer.
