Food Preservation Workshops Continue!


Do you want to take advantage of the abundant harvest of vegetables and fruits that usually take place during summer?

Do you want to learn a healthy and delicious way to preserve and prepare food that you can enjoy later when the harvest is gone?

Are you concerned about the amount of food waste in our homes and communities and want to learn how to reduce or avoid it altogether?

Our Food Fermentation 101 workshop was a success and now we will continue with more…
