Event Description

Tuesday, October 18th, 2-4pm

ROOM# TBA| SFU Surrey Campus

Hosted by Kathy Marven of de la Bouche and the SFU Local Food Project



When those cold, short winter days roll in, the tastes of the fall harvest—crisp apples, luscious pears, and blackberries bursting with flavour under the sun—will be long-forgotten. That is, unless you become proactive with your produce and start preserving.  Join us at the SFU Surrey campus to discover the possibilities opened to you with this traditional skill, get inspired to re-connect with the seasons, discuss the benefits of eating local year round and how to get started preserving! Bring your burning questions and curiosities and ask away!

Participants will gain food preservation skills in dehydration, freezing and canning. Participants will take home locally-sourced pear jam spiced with cinnamon.
