Season Jars – Food Preservation Project
Is a student-led Concordia Food Coalition working group that aims to promote year-round consumption of local, organic and seasonal produce through public education and collective food preservation.
We offer three workshops series per year: Summer, Fall and Winter, they are an experiential and multidisciplinary collective learning experience. Each session lasts a season (summer, fall or winter) and will consist of 2 workshops per month. Our series will cover the history and cultural heritage of food preservation, the health benefits of some preservation techniques, the biochemistry of food preservation as well as the socio-economic, environmental and food security implications of preserving local seasonal food.
Each workshop includes a collective kitchen, where participants collaboratively apply their theoretical knowledge to transform local, organic and seasonal produce into delicious recipes to take home.
