Can-It-Forward with the Boston Food Swap
Saturday, August 17, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
August 17th is National Can It Forward Day, when the art of preserving real food is shared in communities across the country. We at the Boston Food Swap love few things more than real food and community, so we are going to pay our canning skills forward with you!
Although we are eager to see lots of canning newbies learn a new skill, preservation savants are welcome to join us and teach us a few things!
The ticket price will pay for snacks and supplies. Expect to leave with food and newly canned goods!
Our host is Niche Urban Garden Supply, a boutique garden center located in Boston's South End that provides a curated selection of plants, containers & gardening accessories for urban gardens of any size. Check out Tara's Apartment Therapy run-down for beautiful pics and more details on the venue!
When & Where
Boston Food Swap
The goal of our monthly swaps is to create outlet for sharing surplus goods and offer an alternative to store-bought items, helping swappers eat locally, sustainably, and affordably. We’re active in the swapping and local food communities, and we’re working to grow the swap through blogging, social media, and partnerships with like-minded organizations.
