Now's the perfect time to do some canning! This hands on, three hour Village Vancouver workshop is suitable for beginners or those needing to refresh their canning skills. Instructor Caitlin Dorward will cover all the basics of boiling water bath canning with an emphasis on Fall flavours. All materials are provided; and participants will take home a jar of your own creation and a handout covering all material presented in the workshop. We'll have the community seed library present - pick up up some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds.
Cost: $14.29 plus GST. Sliding scale fee ($0 - $14.29 plus GST) for anyone enrolled in Strathcona Subsidy (when registering by phone or in-person). This workshop is also cost accessible using a Leisure Access Card.
