The Women’s Visionary Congress presents its first workshop on savoring seasonal foods as a delicious connection to the Earth and her bounty! The adventure beings on Sunday, November 6th with a FREE FARM TOUR of City Slicker Farms at 2847 Peralta St. in West Oakland, CA. Join us from 10 AM – 2 PM as we learn about this nonprofit farm that recently launched an urban Farm Park in its neighborhood. Our visit will include a presentation from the women who run Imperfect Produce. Both groups are central to a functional revolution in our food system. The tour will be followed by lunch from 2-3 PM at a West Oakland cafe location to be announced.
From 3-4 pm, a shuttle will pick up attendees for a COOKING AND CANNING CLASS at 271 Francisco St. in San Francisco, CA. Led by visionary chef Emma Sanchez, the class will take place from 4-8 PM. Using fruit and vegetables from Imperfect Produce, participants will learn to can applesauce and pumpkin butter and receive an apron and canned food to take home for holiday gifts. We will end the class with a group dinner featuring dishes we will prepare during the class: pumpkin curry with crème fraiche, fresh bread, and apple crumble. Registration is required. Rates are on a sliding scale – we ask that you donate as much as you are able to help WVC and our chef cover the costs associated with putting on this event. Come learn to can as our grandmothers did and celebrate the season with us!
