Serendipity Plant Lore’s November Preserving the Autumn Harvest Workshop @Neighbor’s Market!

Serendipity Plant Lore is coming back to Neighbor’s Market for another fun workshop on preserving local Autumn foods! We’ll preserve all sorts of things, with a fun project for you! Whispers about are begging for more Hungarian Pear Pickling, so Summer’s Hungarian Pickled Pears and Toltott Korte may be IN THE CLASS LINEUP TOO as we pickle and naturally preserve many other things with! 🙂

Many of you have been sending emails asking when Serendipity Plant Lore will be teaching this workshop again, and it’s finally time, Autumn IS HERE! This workshop will be hosted by one of my favorite local grocers, Neighbor’s Market, 1707 Main Street, Vancouver, Washington.


A little Autumn reminisce about the roots of this class, the very first Farm to host this workshop is a favorite local CSA farm, Storytree Farm, in 2008. At that time, I had written out a mission statement for this particular class. I came across this mission statement in my papers this week, it brought back memory, remembrance of students and love, and a comparison to see where my feelings/thoughts are now. I still feel the same way. Teaching about Ancient Nutrition and Ol’ Fashioned Food Storage Techniques, and about the way our Family eats, nutrition for our two sons healing from Autism, has impacted every food choice we make, and it is all about LOVE. As a Community Herbalist, Nutrition is always a building block of a loving and nourishing community, in every way, shape and form.

6th Annual Ol’ Fashioned Preserving the Autumn Harvest Workshops are coming up! A favorite workshop, this is a fun, hands on workshop devoted to the understanding of traditional food storage techniques that use the basic gifts of earth, air, water and salt to put up food in a creative and individual way, to best enhance the flavor, nutrition, over-all health and pure excitement of fresh, local whole food and garden harvests. This class is poetry in motion and participants are encouraged to bring their ideas, questions and recipes, every class is unique!

We’ll cover techniques for Lacto-Fermentation, Pickling, Oiling, Wet and Dry Salting, Summer’s Hungarian Salt Preserves, Drying, Cold Cellar Storage and more low energy techniques and recipes!
