Joel is speaking on the main stage at the Green Living Show in Toronto this coming Saturday at 11:15 !
Urban Food Preserving:
5 Things You Can Preserve In 5 Minutes
People think they don’t have enough time, knowledge or ability to preserve food. Joel MacCharles will inspire as he shows practical methods of simple food preservation – many that can be done in just minutes!
Joel is the co-founder of one of the world’s largest preserving and local food websites, WellPreserved.ca. A recipe developer, former TEDxToronto speaker and mad scientist, he lives with almost 1,000 jars of preserves. Visitwellpreserved.ca for more information.
It’s a great show with a lot of fantastic displays and presentations.
Appetite for Change
An expert panel will dig into the issue of food waste, exploring how it connects to global issues of food security, climate change, agricultural sustainability, and social justice. Local opportunities for reducing food waste will also be explored.
There’s also a panel (at 4:45) on the Importance of Bees, and an amazing lineup of Local food and drink to enjoy.
It’s more than just food there’s… the EcoParent Village, Green Fashion and beauty, yoga and fitness, MaRS discovery District Exhibit and an exhibit and auction of the Maple Leaf Forever tree, among so many other things. It’s going to be a great weekend!
There’s a couple of ways to score FREE ADMISSION. ($15 per person value).
1. BRING OLD ELECTRONICS TO RECYCLE. My keyboard just went kaput so i’ll be bringing it along…full list of accepted items here.
2. Visit the Cannonball on Queen Street East (m-f 730am-5ish, sat 930-5pm). I’ll be leaving a small stack there, grab a coffee or something and ask the Barista. Or ask Joel and I if you see us wandering around Toronto (say hi, we don’t bite)! The ticket vouchers we have are printed and aren’t transferable online, but if you check the speaker and vendor list on the site i’m pretty sure every one of them has some tickets available so visit those establishments or keep an eye out for the speakers and presenters around town!
Hope to see you there!
