Preserving A Community

Chances are, you might have already seen this video.  But if you haven’t, you must watch it!  It tells the tale of Classie Parker, an urban gardener who teaches people how to can and preserve in New York city.  It reminded  me of  how lucky we are here in Lethbridge to have so much SPACE.  So use it!  Plant a garden!  And then preserve it!

I’ve been busy the past couple nights with some dill pickles and zucchini & green tomato relish.  Are you preserving your harvest?  If so, what have you been making?

  1. So wonderful, thanks for sharing Ashley! We did peaches last week (brought them home from my visit with my sister in Ontario; U-picked them then carried them onto the plane in a wheelie cooler bag!). Tomorrow we’re going to pickle some bush beans and yellow zucchini.

    Miss you!
