CANNING SERIES: PRESERVING THE SUMMER GARDEN
Members: $58; Non-members: $70;
Much of the produce in grocery stores is imported from great distances and comes to us carrying a heavy environmental price tag. Commercially canned goods are tainted by a plastic lining that leaches bisphenol A, the chemical that Health Canada has announced as being of concern, especially for children. Knowing how to grow and preserve your own or locally grown produce is an environmentally friendly, economical and nutritional alternative. Join Janet Tigchelaar as she demonstrates the various techniques of canning.
