The Whallonsburg Grange will host a series of Harvest Parties for the public to preserve produce from their gardens and CSA shares at the Grange Community Kitchen. The series will run on Saturdays, every two weeks throughout the growing season.
The kitchen opens up for a “Harvest Party” at 9:30 am until 4:00 pm. Bring produce from your own garden or CSA share to process at the Grange kitchen alongside neighbors.
All ages and skill levels are welcome, and a children’s play area will be available. Participants will bring their own produce, jars, and plastic bags as needed. Each event costs just $5.00 per household. Additional donations are welcome for substantial quantities of processing.
The series is generously funded by grants and gifts from the Essex Community Fund, the Adirondack Foundation’s Generous Acts Fund, and the Essex County Adirondack Garden Club. The organizations also sponsored the purchase of tools for processing fruits and vegetables, and canning equipment.
