Learn to Preserve

Much of the produce found in our grocery stores is imported from great distances with a huge environmental price tag. "Knowing how to grow and preserve your own or locally grown produce is an environmentally friendly, economical and nutritional alternative. Learn cold and hot packing for various late harvest fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes and pickles at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton/Burlington. The Late Harvest preserving program is on Tuesday, August 12 from 7 to 9p.m. at the RBG Centre at a cost of $28 for Members and $32 for Non-members. The registration deadline is August 4th.
