Here's the scoop from Dee Creek & Gertrude:
This may be the last preservation workshop for the season. That said, we have some good herbal and gluten-free workshops coming up - keep your eyes peeled!
If you plan to join us, please RSVP via email and I will send class details. Since there is not enough time to pay prior to this class, I'll give the following note: Please attend if you RSVP. There is an allotted amount of space and these classes fill fast, so no shows are painful and expensive, and a real bummer for others who may have wanted your spot.
Look forward to learning with you all! This class is a very popular one, because it's CHALK full of incredible knowledge and information - I love it!
For those of you who have not had the opportunity to attend in the past (or those who want a refresher!), I'd encourage you to join us! You'll learn about preserving by drying, and with oil, alcohol, salt, vinegar, and whey / lacto-fermentation! That may not be all - some come prepared to learn new things, smell interesting smells, taste interesting tastes, and get your hands dirty! ~Summer

Preserving the Harvest
Vancouver (Orchards), WA
Hosted by Gertrude & Dee Creek Farm
$35/person - RSVP Required
"Preserving the Harvest is a fun, hands on class devoted to the understanding of traditional food storage techniques that use the basic gifts of earth, air, water and salt to put up food in a creative and individual way, to best enhance the flavor, nutrition, over-all health and pure excitement of fresh, local whole food and garden harvests. This class is poetry in motion and participants are encouraged to bring their ideas, questions and recipes, every class is unique!" ~ Gertrude
Attendees will have the opportunity to sign up to the instructors Google group, where there is continued shared interaction and bulk food buying opportunities. We also will have some herbs available for sale (and/or sharing - so please bring anything you have extra of) at class.
This instructor is a wealth of information, and could answer nearly any question, I'm certain (tho' won't hold her to it). She's easy to understand, and makes all of these things so simple & normal and encouraging. She has been a long-time customer of DCF, and a committed Locavore in our community, with two boys needing maximum nutrition to keep their health maintained.
To register for the class, email me your interest,
And confirm with your admission fees (at deliveries or by mail)
Class space is limited
Bring snacks - for yourself, or to share!
I think there is no better time than now, when the economy is struggling,
to learn old-fashioned ways of living!
