Preserve My Harvest

Book tickets

Introducing the Preserve My Harvest workshop series! PMH is a community project dedicated to reducing waste by turning underutilised food into delicious pickles, preserves and ferments!

Do you have an abundance of fruits or vegetables that need preserving?

Often when our garden comes to fruition, we end up with more produce than we can deal with. If we can’t eat or give enough away, this often ends up as food waste.

Anyone with fruit trees will know; when it rains it pours. Join us at the Darebin Arts Centre and our qualified chefs will teach you how to preserve, pickle and or ferment your fresh produce.

Over 3 hours, you can spend time with the chef learning how to create a range of pickles, jams, tomato sauces, relishes or ferments - whatever is best suited to the produce you have.

We bring the jars, labels, cooking equipment and all preserving ingredients needed to create shelf-stable products. All you need to do is bring the fresh produce from your garden.

If you aren’t growing anything right now, don’t worry - we will bring along enough seasonal fruits and vegetables for everyone.

Invite some friends to make it a preserving party!

This event is part of a 3 year partnership with the City of Darebin, with workshops being held every 3 months.

While jars will be provided, if you would like to provide more, please feel free to bring some along!
