We love teaching people all about fruit, how to take care of it, pick it, preserve it, cook with it and bake with it. In fact fruit promotion and education is right up there withour love ofeating, picking and sharing fruit!

That’s why we’re super excited to once again receive a grant from the Assiniboine Credit Union to help us facilitate workshops and events that will help us increase awareness of our local fruit and what to do with it.

Camille Metcalfe of PegCityJams has led many of our workshops over the last couple of years and will be at it again this season. Camille has a creative flair in the kitchen and gets groups making chai crab apple jelly, fruit ice cream, fruit soda syrups and amazing baked goodies.
