In July, Fresh Roots had the pleasure of inviting our friends from Collingwood Neighbourhood House to host a food skills workshop in our kitchen at the Norquay Field House. Using local herbs from community gardens, we were able to make a delicious lemon-balm tea, herb butter and pesto. We had a great turn out, and it was so much fun seeing members of the community coming together to share Good Food.
It was so great, we’re going to do it again on Friday, August 25. The workshop will be from 12pm- 2pm in the Norquay Field House Food Hub, and will involve using fruit from the Vancouver Fruit Tree Project to do some canning and/or jam making. Everyone is welcome to come and share Good Food! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you plan on attending so that we can ensure we bring enough fruit to go around!
