Pickling and Fermenting

Sign Up

From noon until 2 p.m.

Come out to the Food Forest and learn about the basics of pickling and veggie fermentation. We'll harvest the Food Forest's most abundant crop this time of year, green tomatoes! Together, we'll harvest a bunch of green tomatoes, then turn them into pickles. We'll talk about fermentation as another way of preserving the bounty and start some jars. You'll receive handouts with instructions and recipes for both processes. 

You'll need to bring two jars for the class. Wear comfortable clothing and dress for the weather as class is outdoors. 

Cost is $35 with some sliding scale
