Our next workshop will be at the Concordia Greenhouse.
Preserving the Harvest
Wednesday, September 30th from 5:30-7pm at the Concordia Greenhouse.
Many folks think that living in Quebec makes it impossible to eat local food all year round. Actually, with a little planning, you can eat food grown around Montreal throughout the long winter. In this workshop, you’ll learn the basics of several ways to preserve food, including canning, freezing, drying, and fermentation.
We will be making dill pickles together. $10 for the workshop only, $15 includes your own jar of pickles!
The first 25 participants will be admitted.
Shona from Le TinyHomestead will be giving a workshop on canning at 6 pm on Thursday, August 13th at Le Milieu. In this workshop, we'll talk about what types of fruits and vegetables can be canned at home, and how to safely prepare them. You will have the opportunity to make and take home some preserves, based on what is seasonally available.
Check out more details on the Facebook event page and register for the workshop here. This event is offered by our friends at P3 Permaculture.
Thanks to all those who registered for this session of the Urban Sustainability Skills Course; c'est parti! We have a great mix of students, recent grads, and professionals with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.
On Monday, we made lots and lots of applesauce. Applesauce is super easy to make and turns simple fresh apples and ground cinnamon into a magical-smelling, delicious treat that can be canned for winter or eaten immediately. Next week, we'll be talking about canning, freezing, fermenting, and other ways to preserve local food during the long winter months.
Registration is closed for the fall session, but more classes will be offered in January! Check back later in the fall for details, and keep and eye out here for upcoming workshops and discussions.
