It starts, for me, with a desire to continue to develop my creativity, my learning – and sharing these joys with you.
Reliving and using my past experiences in over forty years of stop and start canning… of remembering my earliest days with my Grandma in her basement helping to skim foam off the sauerkraut fermenting in large crocks… of my own early attempts at canning with produce from our first backyard garden……
And it’s about learning more and sharing more. And so I started Preserving Now over six years ago here in the Atlanta area, to offer classes and share knowledge and experiences. Sometimes that means solitary cooking, or workshops and teaching, and sometimes just purely giving away – for the joy of it – what my hands have created. And sometimes it’s about talking with you, friends, students, teachers, old timers, newcomers…..And as we continue, sharing the creativity, products, ideas of others on this website.
And now, through The Learning Kitchen, we have the opportunity to bring instructors teaching classes and workshops in the “The Lost Arts”, many of whom would be invisible were it not for this shared space and community.
Join us, won’t you?
