Preserving Produce
In remote areas, short growing
seasons for backyard gardeners and
farmers make local produce a limited
time offer.
To help people get the most out of
their gardening efforts and extend
the life of their purchased vegetables
and fruits, the Produce Availability
Initiative team worked with the
BC Food Processors Association
to teach people from 21 remote
communities how to safely harvest,
can, dry, and freeze produce at
week-long training programs in
Prince George and Vancouver.
