The workshop will be led by Heather Kilner, an expert preserver with many years of experience.
We are hoping that our farmers will have tomatoes available for us to work with so, weather permitting, you will learn to make a delicious tomato sauce or a simple preserved tomato recipe and take a sample jar or two home with you! We will also take time to reflect on the meaning and significance of learning to preserve our own food, and our experiences of preserved food.
To register please visit our website at westendfood.coop.
