Instructors: Csilla Thackray of Churchview Farm, Hanna Mosca of Grow Pittsburgh, and Tara Rockacy of Churchview Farm.
Now that you have been harvesting from your garden & trying new veggies from the farmer’s markets, come learn about preserving the harvest! Chef Csilla, along with Grow Pittsburgh’s Hanna Mosca and Churchview Farm’s Tara Rockacy, will teach the basics of fermentation and canning plus a brief overview of using a dehydrator and freezing techniques. We will cover safe practices, troubleshooting & our favorite tips and tricks. We will also share our favorite preserving books, tools & recipes.
Backyard Farm School is an expanded monthly learning series, put on by Churchview Farm and Grow Pittsburgh. Farmers Tara (Churchview) and Hanna (Grow Pittsburgh) will be joined by local chefs and special guest farmers to lead this season-long workshop series.
