  • Where : Santropol Roulant 111 Roy street East, Montreal
  • Who : Anyone who would like to learn to make jam, no experience necessary
  • Cost : We suggest a donation of $15 per participant (or $10 for students, seniors, the underemployed etc.) all proceeds are used internally to support our mission.
We will discuss:

All participants will go home with a recipe, a step-by-step canning checklist, and a delicious jar of cherry jam!
