If your garden (or CSA box) is overflowing with a bounty of summer vegetables, come learn how to preserve them for year round enjoyment at Growing Local NOLA's free jam making and pickling class July 24.
A collaborative project between the New Orleans Food and Farm Network and Recirculating Farms Coalition, the class will teach attendees how to create a quick and tasty pepper jelly, pickled onions and pickled peppers.
Growing Local NOLA, an urban farm currently in development in Central City, has plans to host a number of community cooking and nutrition classes once open for business.
"We are so excited to be preparing for our official opening, and to offer a wide range of classes to the community: from farmer and gardener trainings to health supportive, local cooking," said Executive Director Marianne Cufone.
Interested participants should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure there are enough vegetables and supplies.
