For years now, I have wanted to create a food preservation gathering. Someplace where we could gather to talk food preservation, meet fellow jam and pickle makers, and share our collective pleasure around this saving food from one season to the next.
This year, Fillmore Container and I are working together to make this dream of mine into reality.
Join us on Saturday, June 8 for a one-day retreat focused on home food preservation. An array of regional experts will present on topics including boiling water bath canning, pressure canning, fermentation, troubleshoot your home preserved goods, preserving with natural sweeteners, and making the best possible use of all those glowing jars of goodies.
The retreat will take place at The Livery at the Lampeter Cafe in Lampeter, PA (located in scenic Lancaster County) and will go from 9 am to 5 pm. The registration fee is $95. That includes the full day of programming, continental breakfast, lunch and a preserving goodie bag for you to take home and enjoy.
Registration for the 60 available seats will open in early April. Head over to the Fillmore Container blog to sign up for the retreat mailing list, so that you’ll know the moment registration begins.
I will be on hand all day, both presenting and participating in the day. Other speakers will be announced as confirmed. We hope you’ll join us for a day of learning, community, and food preservation fun!
