Bastyr University alumna Kim Powers, herbalist and registered aromatherapist, will host “Canning and Preserving,” a class for anyone interested in extending the enjoyment of summer’s fruit and vegetable harvest.

There are many easy and fun ways to store seasonal veggies, fruit, berries and herbs that become available in summer from your own garden, your neighbor’s or the local farmer’s market. Join Kim and learn simple, time-saving techniques for “putting up” food for the winter months. Learn about dehydrating and canning tomatoes, making berry jam and applesauce, and freezing pesto.

She will also take questions and give advice on your favorite things to pickle and preserve. Canning and preserving is both a healthy option for getting these foods during the winter and a great way to eat locally year round. And it makes for great, low-cost gift giving, too.
