Food Preservation Workshop - Sun Aug 19

On August 19th 2012 from 2pm to 4pm the Mayne Island Conservancy will be hosting a workshop on food preservation techniques.

Food preservation is essential for making our locally produced seasonal foods available year round. Participants at the workshop will rotate though five demonstration stations focusing on methods for different preservation techniques.

Topics covered will include: Principles of Dehydration, Herbs and Herb Drying, Pickling, Principles of Canning, and The Use of Root Cellars. Each station will be led by a different community volunteer and will take about 15 minutes.

Be sure to bring a pencil and paper to take notes with.

If you are interested in joining us for this workshop please preregister with Rob Underhill by sending him an email at or giving him a call at (250) 893-7110. Space is limited so please sign up soon!
