Just in time for harvest! Learn about and practice various methods of food preservation, including canning, freezing, drying and long-term produce storage. Using TLC Farm's garden, orchard and outdoor kitchen as a classroom,  this class will involve both discussion (your ideas, thoughts and wisdom invited!) and hands-on engagement with canning jam and sauce.  We'll focus on the fruits & vegetables that grow abundantly in this region, including berries, squash, cucumber, apples, tomatoes and alliums.

Sliding scale fee of $15-30, with limited worktrade options available. Kids welcome!

We will be running a shuttle from People's Food Co-op (SE 21st & Tibbetts) at 9:30, returning at 4:30 pm.  Please register for the class and let me know if you will be riding the shuttle at Please bring your own lunch.
