Food Preservation Retreat 2019

We’ve got some BIG news! Fillmore Container along with Food in Jars is hosting a Food Preservation Retreat!

Join us on Saturday, June 8 for a one-day retreat focused on home food preservation. An array of regional experts will present on topics including boiling water bath canning, pressure canning, fermentation, troubleshooting your home preserved goods, preserving with natural sweeteners, and making the best possible use of all those glowing jars of goodies. 

REGISTER HERE

The retreat includes a full day of programming, continental breakfast, lunch and a preserving goodie bag for you to take home and enjoy.  Marisa McClellan of Food in Jars will be an instructor at the retreat and will be on hand all day to answer canning questions. Additional instructors include, Amanda Feifer author of Ferment Your Vegetables, and Martha Zepp from Penn State Extension. Other speakers will be announced as confirmed.
 
The retreat will take place at The Livery at the Lampeter Cafe in Lampeter, PA (located in scenic Lancaster County) and will go from 9 AM to 5 PM. The registration fee is $95.
 
We hope you’ll join us for a day of learning, community, and food preservation fun!

    Hi,
    Do you suggest having canning or preserving experience to attend this retreat or isn’t it necessary? Thanks! 🙂
