South Seattle Canning Classes

Please Note New Time and Location

When: Sept. 15th and Sept. 29th from 5:30pm to 8:30pm

Where: Jefferson Community Center

FREE (donations to City Fruit and Sustainable South Seattle accepted)

Each class will be able to hold 10 people. Every participant will learn how to preserve fruit with Terrie Irish, a canner for 30 years who recently received her master food preserver certificate. Every participant will learn how to can plums and make plum jam and will be able to take home what they make.

The goal of these classes is to educate our local south Seattle community about food preservation. These classes are free in exchange for a commitment to continue canning and educating your friends and neighbors about food preservation. In addition, resources such as public access to canning equipment and guidance from master canner volunteers will be available after the series of classes are over. A translator will be available if requested in advance.

Please contact our Outreach Coordinator, Kate King, at moc.liamg|gnik.c.etak#moc.liamg|gnik.c.etak if you are interested in attending one of these two classes.
