Kombucha is a fermented beverage that has all kinds of health benefits, and is becoming more mainstream every day. Gabe Johnston, as you will hear in this podcast, is inspired to create his own special version of raw organic Kombucha tea in three distinct flavours which are strongly resonating with his patrons at Farmers' Markets this summer in rural Ontario.
Loon Kombucha is a distinctive brand with a sustainable model of recycling the beautiful glass bottles. Returning customers bring the clean, sterilized bottles back to be refilled at any of the markets for a reduced price. Recipes designed in Thailand and produced locally in Lanark County, these teas are wild in colour, fragrance and taste.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
