Hello OFRE volunteers,
Parkallen Community League is hosting a picking and canning workshop this Saturday afternoon, Sept 11th.
We will meet at 12:30 at the Parkallen Community League Hall to do some picking and then go back to the hall to start processing. If you have boxes of fruit at home that need to get used up please bring them as well. We will have a big crusher and barrel press so we can make A LOT of juice! This past weekend we pressed about 150 litres of juice in one afternoon.
1) items for picking fruit: bags,boxes for picking fruit, anythng you would need for being outdoors (comfortable clothing, jacket, hat, sunscreen, etc.)
2) items for the canning/juicing party: some jugs and canning jars, ziploc bags, and boxes/bags to carry home your canned goods! We will be chopping and freezing apples for pies, or just to take home with you and eat, and maybe making applesauce.
3) an item for the potluck supper if you plan to attend. The potluck supper will be @ 5:00pm in the parkallen hall.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can plan for the right number of people.
