Harvest Together

Ah, the almost lost art of preserving the harvest!  Join us for a laughter filled weekend of canning and cooking. Using the bounty available to us, we will work in teams of 2 or 3 to transform nature's cornucopia into jars of wonder to enjoy for the following year to come. How much we get done will depend on you!  Many hands make for light work, and laughter makes it lighter!

Everyone's expertise is welcome! Bring your grandma's favourite recipe, your brother-in-law's BBQ sauce secrets, your ideas for the perfect pickle - we'll try them all. Go home inspired to continue this fine tradition. Make your grandma proud with what you can show off on your return from this retreat!

Together we'll make
  • Chutneys, jams, and butters
  • Pickles, relishes, and sauces
  • Canned fruits and veggies
  • Mustards and spice rubs
  • Herbed oils and dried sachets
  • Teas and treats 

We'll also discuss ways to make sure that all this bounty gets eaten in the year to come. Nothing walks that fine line between traditional homeyness and today's hipster like a spoonful of spicy chutney to adorn your Christmas cheese plate.  

Cost: This retreat costs $320 and you will go home with a recipe book and a fine collection of harvest treats.  Perks for those who bring jars or their own garden's bounty!

Spaces Available: 8
