Find out how easy canning food can be!  This class makes an in-season product.  All the ingredients, necessary equipment and jars are provided by the Edible Brattleboro.We use safe canning recipes during hands-on lessons.  Each participant leaves with knowledge of the canning process and a jar of product. Learn how to can food, so you will be able to repeat the process at home in 2 hours.

Edible Brattleboro has been growing tomatoes in a greenhouse this summer, thanks to the generosity of Hilltop Montessori School. We are offering a “make-it-and-take-it” Tomato Canning Workshop Oct 3rd, 2020 from 1-3 pm at the Retreat Farm with Instructor Celeste Longacre.

This class is hands-on and has limited space. Participants MUST pre-register thru the link below. 

All sessions will be held outdoors at the Retreat Farm from 1-3pm. Participants must wear masks and gloves (provided). Dress for the weather – we be under an open tent, rain or shine. We are taking precautions for safety, with limited enrollment (9 hands-on). 

The workshops are free (donations accepted with gratitude). 

Celeste Longacre is the author of “Celeste’s Garden Delights” and an accomplished gardener who has been growing most of her family’s vegetables for over 35 years. Celeste preserves the garden’s bounty by canning, freezing, drying, and fermenting it as well as storing her produce in a root cellar. She and her husband, Bob, live sustainably in a handmade octagonal home. During the cold winter months, their heat is provided by the firewood that Bob cuts. Much of their electricity is generated with an array of solar panels.  For further information visit her website at www.celestelongacre.com.
