Our Food Preservation Program

Not yet familiar with our preserves? There’s lots to be excited about:

  • All the food we use in our food preservation program is grown here on the island of Montreal. The vegetables are grown at our farm in Senneville, and on our two urban agriculture sites. Fruit is provided by the Fruits Défendus  a volunteer-run urban fruit harvesting collective.
  • We reduce waste, and teach our community of volunteers to preserve food!
  • What we love the most about our preserves is that volunteers can be involved every step of the way, from weeding and harvesting on the farm, to picking fruit, to preparing canned, dried and fermented foods. The Roulant provides opportunities for volunteers to be better connected to their food sources and learn in a supported and inclusive environment.
  • If you would like to learn and prepare your own preserves, keep an eye out for canning and fermentation workshops happening from June to November 2016.

We love people all year long, not just in February! By purchasing items from the General Store, you are supporting our mission. Thanks!
