Preserving the Harvest
September 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This talk and demonstration by OHS member and Master Gardener Rebecca Last will describe ways to preserve the harvest. It will cover drying (drying herbs; dehydration of fruits and vegetables); cooking; canning (preserves – jams, jellies, chutneys); vinegars; freezing; and curing.
Rebecca has been gardening on and off since age 8, and has been a member of Master Gardeners of Ottawa-Carleton since 2005. Her small suburban garden is certified by the Canadian Wildlife Federation as wildlife habitat. Rebecca grows a dozen or more varieties of heritage tomatoes every year. Her garden design includes elements of permaculture and she has been honoured to receive several awards from the Ontario horticulture community. Rebecca’s gardening addiction is enabled by her loving husband Richard and a collection of very spoiled rescue cats.
This presentation will be a free Webinar. There is no registration required. A recording will be available for members only for 14 days after the presentation.
