Hip Hop Classes
L2R Next Gen Inc. is a grass roots Not For Profit cultural organisation based in the Western suburbs of Melbourne. L2R Next Gen Inc. uses Hip Hop dance as the vehicle to engage and empower youth from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, more specifically, newly arrived, migrant and refugees. One of L2R's our main purposes is to provide opportunity for youth to participate in Hip Hop dance workshops that would usually struggle to access regular recreation classes due to barriers associated with poverty, disadvantage and being newly arrived in a foreign country.

L2R is offering free Hip Hop dance workshops every Tuesday from 4:30-6:30pm. 100% passion, commitment and respect.

Fermented Vege
Monday 27 April 7.00pm – 8.30pm (1 session)
Cultures have been fermenting veg for thousands of years as a means of preserving crops throughout the off season and minimising waste. While this is a great way of preserving food, it is also a great way to enrich your food and turn it into a probiotic powerhouse. Fermenting as a form of food preservation creates a rich probiotic health food that can taste great as well. Forget the slimy and vinegary pickles that you find on store shelves, these are crunchy, full of flavour and life. During the workshop we will make our own sauerkraut to take home and you will chose from a range of different herbs and spices to add to your own kraut. Ingredients and recipes are provided, BYO apron.
Cost: $32
