Tuesday Night “Can-in” Starts
After a successful year in 2009, teaching local residents to can local produce, the Richmond Food Security Society is pleased to announce a regular drop-in canning session every Tuesday night at Garratt Wellness Center. From 5:00-7:00 residents will be able to drop by and either preserve their own produce or else help put aside fruit and vegetables harvested from the Sharing Farm in Terra Nova. The sessions are free and child care will also be provided upon request
For some residents, pectin, canning jars and hot water baths are a totally new experience. These informal canning sessions allow participants to learn the techniques hands-on. An instructor will also be on hand on certain dates to show participants how to can specific fruits and vegetables. Hot water bath canners and jars will be provided for those participants who wish to bring their own ingredients.
Garratt Wellness Center is located at 7504 Chelsea Place, near No. 2 Rd and Blundell. The Richmond Food Security Society would like to thank Vancouver Coastal Health for helping to host these sessions.
