I’m very pleased to announce a fledgling non-profit organization, the Food Preservation Associates. We’re a new group of former Lane County Extension Master Food Preservers working to (1) provide food safety and preservation education to our community, and (2) help the effort to bring Extension back. And you can help by showing your support…and learning! Our first class, Gifts from the Kitchen, is headed by talented craftswoman and baker Barbara Biggs and assisted by the FPAs, whom I am sure would be happy to answer your questions about food preservation and other holiday cooking.
- What: Gifts from the Kitchen class
- When: Wednesday, December 1 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
- Where: First United Methodist Church, 1376 Olive, Eugene
- RSVP: 541-747-3915
- Cost: $20.
We’ll be doing baked goods, spiced nuts and brittle, gifts in a jar, and an impressive range of wrapping and packaging with cost-efficient materials. This has been historically one of our most popular classes, so please join us!
Please call and reserve your spot. Send your checks, made to Food Preservation Associates, to P.O. Box 370, Walterville, 97489.
I have more news and will be providing an update after the class with everything I’m allowed to say…but I’ll just tell you know that I’m thrilled by the efforts of Laura Hindrichs and all the amazing MFP volunteers I’ve grown to love over the past few years, and the community backing we’ve already been receiving from supporters like Adam Bernstein of Adam’s Sustainable Table.
