Paul Boyter

Paul Boyter has a background in market gardening, permaculture, sound therapy, yoga and meditation.

Trixi Junge, facilitator for the Fermentation Workshop at FARMHOUSE58

Trixie Junge


Trixi Junge is a South African ceramic artist, kinesiologist and fermentologist of German descent. She spent her formative years in Mozambique, and then emigrated to South Africa. She studied architectural draughting followed by a degree in Translation. Trixi dabbled in pottery as a hobby throughout her “corporate career life” and about 20 years ago, she turned her passion into a “life choice”. Lixiware combines her love of functional artisanal pottery with her philosophy. Trixi’s philosophy is simple, consciously put your health first and choose healthy, sustainable options. Making your own naturally fermented Sauerkraut, Curtido or Kimchi is a good start.
