It finally feels as though summer is in full swing, which means it’s time to start thinking about preserving all the produce from our gardens!  Dehydrating food is an amazing way to preserve your harvest for many reasons:  it’s economical, nutritious, easy to store, and also has the decided advantage of being easy and fun.

In this workshop, we will learn about the benefits of food dehydration, explore the advantages of various dehydration methods, and do lots of snacking.  Each participant will leave with a string of “leather britches” (a rad olde-timey name for dried beans) and lots of recipes and resources to keep exploring the possibilities of food dehydration.

Suggested donation:  $5

Location:  The straw bale building at the Compost Ed Centre, 1216 North Park St, Victoria, BC
