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 cost is $5.00 per person for each event.

On Saturday, July 25, from 9:30 to noon, local food processor Jori Wekin of Dak & Dill will lead a workshop in “Introduction to Pickling & Canning.” Wekin will explain the process for cold-pack and hot-pack pickles as well as natural ferments. Participants can bring jars and their cucumbers, green beans, and other garden produce for processing. Jars will also be available for purchase. Reservations are recommended by emailing office manager Stephanie Beneng at

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.
