Abundant Pantry Workshop

Living a low food waste life means eating seasonal produce, managing abundance of seasonable fruit/vegetables by storing/preserving it for later to reduce your thruway waste.

You can freeze fresh fruit, herbs and some vegetables but do you know that traditional preserving techniques use less energy (and therefore have lower carbon footprint) compared to modern ways.

Pickling and preserving also allows you use your excess produce by giving it a longer life. Learn how you can pickle or preserving cucumbers, carrots, lemons and more.

Reduce your household waste, get upskilled! 

Who: This workshop is suitable for adults who live in the City of Ryde local government area. Participants will be engaged to learn new skills that will allow them to actively reduce consumption, waste and plastics in their households. 

Equipment: Please bring your own apron, note pad and pen to take notes. To reduce our environmental impact, please bring your own cup to enjoy morning tea.

Clothing and Footwear: Footwear must be enclosed, non-slip sole and suitable for physical activity. NO thongs, sandals or open toed shoes.

This is a Waste Education program brought to you by the City of Ryde.
