KLT/LIBH Harvest Event
Experience the essence of abundance and community at our Harvest Gathering hosted by Land in Black Hands, a program of the Kingston Land Trust. It’s happening October 15th @ 1pm, at the Old Dutch Church.
Once considered a lost art, we will be canning and preserving our end-of-season foods from the garden to use throughout the winter. Join us as we explore the different methods and techniques used to can and preserve food, including pickling. We'll be making different versions of all that is brought to our table, including homemade tomato sauce, salsa, soup, preserves, jams and more. Additionally, we’ve harvested herbs to make teas, marigolds and roses for salves, and expect that there will be seed-keeping and seed sharing as well. So bring your aprons and your specialties and expect to have some fun. *Children are welcome. *Spectators who just want to learn are welcome. *Donations are welcome.
This event is free, but you can contribute in the following ways:
Bring food from your own garden harvest.
Bring herbs (basil, rosemary, sage, etc.).
Bring seeds if you have some to share.
Bring tools, supplies (oils, seasonings, jars, seed envelopes), and/or recipes.
Bring your good vibes and willingness to try something new if this is your first time.
Upon conclusion of our hard work dinner will be served and participants will have first dibs on varieties to take home. So let us know you’re coming and what you can bring, if anything.
