Good Food: Scratch Cooking & Food Preservation

Build skills and share knowledge around scratch cooking and food preservation in order to reduce food waste, to become advocates in our local food system and to reclaim an abundance of food for ourselves, our families and our communities.

Tilth Alliance is excited to pilot a new, community-based training series to bring together educators, kitchen leads, chefs and community leaders. 

About the Training Series

Good Food: Scratch Cooking and Food PreservationWe’ll build skills and share knowledge around scratch cooking and food preservation in order to reduce food waste, to become advocates in our local food system and to reclaim an abundance of food for ourselves, our families and our communities.

This collaborative, skills-based training will include a combination of lectures, discussions and hands-on activities. Topics will include the following:

  • Pollinator SaladFood systems, food justice and the value of food
  • Cooking basic foods from scratch and intuitive cooking approaches
  • Incorporating farm- and garden-fresh produce into meals 
  • Canning, freezing, drying, storing and other food storage and preservation methods
  • Meal planning and food waste prevention strategies

This training is made possible by funding from a Public Participation Grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology. Because it is offered at little-to-no cost for participants, we are looking for participants who will be inspired to share the information and skills learned with their communities.
