As Covid restrictions begin to be lifted, all hopes are high that we will soon be able to begin Food Preservation classes. One group of women have booked a class for early October. Fingers crossed we will be able to join together and make some Thanksgiving treats.
If you have an interest in visiting the Kimberley area to hike, bike, kayak, ski and enjoy the many wineries, cideries and restaurants, a class on canning, fermenting or food preservation in general can be arranged as part of your stay. To explore places to stay check out these links:

Previous workshops on water-bath canning, pressure canning, dehydration and fermentation were provided through various community groups like Agriculture Grey-Bruce, Southeast Grey Community Health Centre and Dundalk Library, the Canadian Mental Health Association, Southwest Ontario Aboriginal Health Access Centre. Additionally, workshops were offered to groups of individuals in a fun-filled and seasonally relevant format. Hands on workshops and demonstrations help learners develop skills and knowledge about food preservation methods. Zoom classes were also offered through Agriculture Grey Bruce.
Watch for announcements of upcoming classes and workshops. Start thinking about what you’d like to learn. Grab some friends and plan a class here in the beautiful Beaver Valley.
