The Bloom Hosts Canning How-To Sunday

Canning How-To

1 – 5 p.m. Sunday  Oct. 24
The Bloom Collective
Steepletown Center
671 Davis NW (Corner of 5th & Davis)

You don’t have to stay for the entire four hours to participate. Come, can and go!

Are you mad as hell that America’s food and agriculture industries (1) grow GMO foods that can make you sick, (2) use processing methods that delete nutrients and insert harmful additives, (3) are a major cause of climate change, soil death and water pollution, and (4) target kids and adults with foods that cause obesity, diabetes and heart disease?

Here’s your chance to take some direct action. Learn how to can your own food. Canning is easy and safe. You don’t have to worry about those six-syllable food additives poisoning your family. And, canning your own takes you one more step away from the capitalist economic system.

You can learn the basics of canning at this Sunday’s free workshop sponsored by The Bloom Collective. From 1 to 5 p.m., experienced home canners from The Bloom, Our Kitchen Table and the GR Free School will show folks how to can applesauce. Bring your own produce, jars, lids, a cutting board and knife.
