Come learn the basics of how to preserve the season’s abundance. We will learn the basics of hot water bath canning, dehydrating, freezing, storing, and fermenting. Preserving foods is not only a delicious way to taste summer in the dark rainy days of winter, but it is also an act of sustainability and creates more security in the food system.
Kayla is a keen foodie – growing, cooking, eating, preserving, fermenting food are all passions of hers. She sees food preservation not only as a delicious and healthy way to preserve the bounty of the summer season, but also as one way to create a more food secure regional system, and lower her personal impact on the environment all while having fun!

The Compost Education Centre is located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa’wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. At the CEC we seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies and our diverse, evolving communities.
