Edible Gardening Group

This group is for novice and experienced gardeners who are interested in learning more about growing their own food. We talk about basic seasonal growing activities and there will be additional focused topic meetings throughout the year. The group will have opportunities for hands on learning such as sowing seeds etc. as well as interactive discussions. If you wish to join this group, please email Jim Farr.

Edible Gardening Work Shop - Preserving the Harvest

Saturday, Jan 20, 2018, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Location: Eden Garden, 1660 Freisman Rd, Livermore

at the barn behind Crosswinds Church

The Edible Garden Group (EGG) will be meeting from 1-4 pm on Saturday, January 20 at the Barn in Eden Gardens behind the Crosswinds Church in Livermore. The topic will be fast and easy methods of preserving the harvests from our gardens. Whether you are experienced at food preservation or have never done it before, these techniques will make preserving fruits and vegetables fast and easy, requiring less time and effort. Subjects will include atmospheric steam canning, freezer jams, and dehydration among other subjects. These techniques will allow us to make the most from our 2018 edible harvests.
