Preserve your backyard harvest with this great workshop

16 Mar 2017

The next session in Council’s Smarter Living Workshop series will show participants how to preserve their home-grown harvest safely and with all natural ingredients.

Whitehorse Councillor Bill Bennett said presenter Maria Ciavarella, owner of local business My Green Garden, would share her expertise in preserving food and cooking with the bounty of the organic garden.

“Making preserves is an excellent way to keep and enjoy the organic produce from your own garden into the future. The workshop will teach preserving techniques, using all natural ingredients to help retain the nutrients and delicious taste of your fresh, self-grown fruit and vegies,” Cr Bennett said.

Maria’s company, My Green Garden, specialises in demonstrations, talks and workshops about sustainable gardening.
