West End Food Co-op will be running another canning workshop

Someone recently commented on the Junction needing a framers market, what i really wish we had was a food co-op like the West End Food Co-op

The West End Food Co-op will be running another canning workshop onTuesday September 28th in the Parkdale Neighbourhood Church at 201 Cowan Avenue!

The workshop will be led by Heather Kilner, an expert preserver with many years of experience.

You will learn about the theory and practice of preserving, gain hands-on experience using a hot water bath canner, and leave with a jar of delicious preserves to take 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.

The workshop will run from 6:00-8:30 with registration starting at 5:30. The total cost for the workshop is $30 for West End Food Co-op members or $35 for non-members (which includes the cost of a lifetime membership). Payment can be made in person at the workshop.

Hey, that's me!

WEFC has many members in the Junction and we will always welcome you guys! We also totally encourage you to start your own food co-op & farmers' market! The Sorauren Market was the first project of our co-op and is a great way to start building community support and awareness. Come by Sorauren Park (Mondays 4-7 – weekly until at least December, in the field house) and we will chat 🙂
