Is there life after the Eat Local Challenge?

Wondering how to keep eating local food after the harvest season ends?  Try preserving now to enjoy eating the local bounty throughout the year.  We thought you might like to know about this class from Transition Northfield to get you started!

A Day of Canning Basics

Sunday Sept.18, 9:30am-5ish at the Cristofaro-Hark’s Farm at 4133 Millersburg Blvd, Lonsdale.

Transition Northfield says:

“Join us for a day of canning tomatoes! Gain the skills to enjoy your garden through the winter and come away with several jars to take home. We will be providing ingredients grown without chemicals from Spring Wind Farm, as well as canning supplies and equipment.

“All levels of experience with food preservation are welcome. There will be hand-outs, books and ideas to share. Everyone is welcome!

“The first 13 paid registrants will have their space held. Suggested donation for the class is $20.00 to cover costs of canning supplies, ingredients and LP  gas for the outdoor cookers. Please bring your own lunch, water bottle and sunscreen.”
