Gardening 101.6: Using Your Harvested Food; Canning, Pickling and more

  • October 27, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • Private Residence

This class is part of a 6 part series, come to all 6 and complete the course. Or pick and choose and get the information most relevant to you. Students who attended the first 5 sections will get first priority for this session. This class will be held at a private residence and can only hold a maximum of 15 people.

So you’ve grown your harvest and it’s bursting at the seams, what now? Let’s can it! Canning is becoming a lost art and is such a healthy and fun way to feed your family year-round. This class will go over how to properly harvest your bounty, collect and store it as well as can, pickle, ferment or whatever else you could possibly want to do with it. We’ll start with a romp through the garden and finish in the kitchen cooking up a storm. Be ready to peel and exfoliate, this will be a hands-on experience. Jars of what we make will be available for sale for $2. Bring a mason jar if you’d like to take some home with you for just $1. Menu will be e-mailed out the night before.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
