Event description

Description

It's back, by popular demand!

Join us for our second session of 'Canning for Community!

Fall is harvest time in our beautiful Valley and canning fruits and vegetables is one way that we 'can' enjoy the harvest for months to come! Join us for a three-hour Introduction to Canning Workshop with chef Sonja Limberger. Each participant will get to take home a minimum of four one-pint jars of food and, in the spirit of community sharing, we will donate 1/3 of what we can with the Lake Trail Community School salad bar program.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Properly sterilize jars and canning tools
  • Prepare and precook fruits & vegetables
  • Pack jars and choose pickling spices
  • Cooking times and temperatures
  • Standing/cooling times and more!

The types of produce being canned will be dependent on what is harvested from our Farm Gleaning Program, as well as local availability.

COST: $30 per person.

Bursaries are available to those in need. Please email admin@lushvalley.org to apply for the bursary.

Other things you need to know:

  • This workshop is for people aged 15 and up.
  • Space is limited to 12 participants, so please register early to avoid disappointment!
  • Bring a sturdy box to take home your canning.
  • A full meal will not be served at this workshop, so please have dinner in advance. Some healthy snacks will be available.
  • Refunds are subject to a $5 administration fee. Tickets are transferable.

Questions? Please email admin@lushvalley.org or call us at 250-218-4952.

We gratefully acknowledge and extend thanks to Lake Trail Community Middle School for the privilege of using their teaching kitchen and their ongoing support of our many healthy food programs.
