Fruit bottling workshop


30 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Jul 13, 2022

*Peaches and blackberries are on! Let me know if you are keen for a bottling workshop. We might be able to do one on a Friday or a weekday evening through February in Penguin.*
When we have plentiful fruit (usually February and April), I can run a workshop to show you how to use the Fowlers Vacola system to bottle fruit.
It is easy for me to run this workshop in Penguin. In that case the cost is 30 CENTs / Simbi per person.
You can suggest other venues if you like.
In the meantime you can watch a video to learn:

Training & Qualifications

I am trained in medicine, health promotion and health coaching.
I love teaching people how to live sustainably and healthily - and learning from them!
In this workshop (and video) we discuss botulism and how to avoid it.
The video has 6600 views after 2 years, with many grateful comments.
I haven't offered this workshop over Zoom before, but we could try.

Availability & Preferences

Fridays and weekends.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

Broken umbrellas
If you come across any broken umbrellas this winter (especially beautifully coloured ones), I like to sew with the material. Feel free to drop off to me in Penguin or Heybridge.
