Featured Image -- 1396“Food preservation has been used for centuries by all cultures.

Come and join us for these fun and practical workshops and learn how you too can preserve food and avoid waste.”

  1. Hi Silvia,

    Will you be at the July 15th Workshop? It is a Wednesday, I would like to attend but I would need to leave early as Shanae has a Creative Writing course that ends at 12:00 so I would need to leave in time to pick her up. Do you think it would make sense?
