Summer Produce Preservation Workshop
September 18 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$7
Do you have veggie garden or would like to start one? Do you hunt for good deals in the 4000 produce bin at the Co-op? Would you like to increase resilience against possible food supply disruption? This workshop is for you!
This is the first in the series of workshop by Everyone’s Food Sovereignty School to explore why food sovereignty matters to everyone and how we can strengthen community-based food resiliency. Every workshop includes four elements: skill development (cooking, gardening, etc), network building, knowledge sharing, and the relationship-with-land cultivation. You are welcome to join the entire series or a single workshop.
In early days of the COVID pandemic, I (megumi) was working at the Co-op. Looking at the empty dry-good shelves for weeks, it became very clear to me that I needed to increase food self-reliance. This realization, combined with life-long involvement in food movement, lead me to develop this workshop series. It is intended to be a forum to share knowledge and skills to strengthen community-based food sovereignty.
As this particular workshop will take place at the end of summer, we focus our attention on stretching season’s bounty by putting them up. We will practice basic canning, fermentation, and dehydration techniques.
