Event Details

Edible Brattleboro has an abundance of apples which we will be turning into apple pie filling. We are offering a “make-it-and-take-it” Apple Canning Workshop Oct 10th, 2020 from 1-3 pm at the Retreat Farm with Instructor Celeste Longacre.

Space is limited to 9 hands-on learners and ALL participants must pre-register via this link:

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.

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).
